102-year-old pianist strikes a chord at Seminole’s Freedom Square
SEMINOLE — The year 1920 was a banner year for the country. The roaring 20s kicked off, President Woodrow Wilson created the League of Nations, women gained the right to vote, and the Lost Generation took over the landscape of American literature.
It was also the year Seminole resident and musician Ruona Towse was born. And 102 years later, she’s still marches to the beat of her own drum — or rather, her own piano.
