June is Black Music Month, and we're celebrating the contributions of Black musicians past and present. On today's show, learn more about Lady Jess, a freelance violinist living in New York City. We'll hear selections from one of Lady Jess's recent projects - a recording of The Prison, by Ethel Smyth.
