The next time you’re traveling through BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, you might just hear some familiar tunes. BWI Marshall and 89.7 WTMD have partnered to highlight local artists in several parts of the airport.

In addition to recorded music piped in through speakers, BWI Marshall and WTMD will feature live music from local bands on the last Friday of each month at 7 p.m. The live performances are held in the lower level of the airport terminal, near baggage claim five.

“An important part of our emphasis on customer service is to create positive, memorable travel experiences,” said Paul J. Wiedefeld, chief executive officer of BWI Marshall Airport. “This series will highlight the creative musical talent of our region. As a gateway to Maryland and the national capital region, BWI Marshall is a great location to feature local music.”

Scott Mullins, WTMD program director, said, “We are thrilled to expose these Baltimore/D.C. artists to the 22.5 million travelers who pass through the airport each year. We have received tremendous feedback from people who have heard the music over the airport sound system. Many artists, including internationally known Dan Deacon, have mentioned it on their social media outlets.”
