Southwest Florida singer/songwriter Sheena Brook plays live in studio ahead of her performance at the first, “Music on the Mound,” concert at the Mound House on Fort Myers Beach.  The Mound House remains the oldest structure on Estero Island, sitting atop a 2,000-year-old shell mound from the Calusa Indians.  In addition to a museum exploring the regions history and prehistory, the Mound House provides a variety of cultural and environmental education programs for visitors of all ages.  The first “Music on the Mound” Concert on April 21, will benefit the Mound House Summer Scholarship Fund.
