TULSA — Tulsa International Airport launched its music program, Tunes at TUL, on Friday with a kickoff performance from local band Red Dirt Rangers.

The effort is aimed at creating a "unique sense of place" at the airport, while also "promoting Tulsa's rich music history and vibrant scene."

"We're thrilled to bring this program to TUL," said Alexis Higgins, CEO of Tulsa Airports. "Bringing the sounds of the city to our airport is yet another way we're creating an authentic Tulsa experience for our passengers that may not have the chance to explore while they are here.”

The Tunes and TUL will be located after security in the food court area between Concourses A and B.

The music series started Friday and is scheduled for every Friday afternoon until the end of August.

“Every top music city in the country has an international airport with a local music program, and now Tulsa is no different,” said Abby Kurin, executive director of the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture.

Tulsa-based musicians are encouraged to apply through the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture. Musicians can apply directly through email at abbykurin@visittulsa.com.

The performance schedule can be found at www.flytulsa.com.
