Music Around Town “Online” March 18-22, 2020

Venues are closed. Some are still open and doing take out. Click on the links through the page to see if anything is going on. Hopefully this stay at home/social distancing will not last long.

When asked if there are musicians in the area that are doing live music feeds and/or giving lessons online. Yes there are and this is the response..
The internet can be such a great tool while
having to stay in. How nice it is that one can get lesson, too via online!

Wouldn’t it be nice during this time for those who have can help those who do not?
I miss being able to go a couple of minutes down the street to see and hear live music.
Just click on their name and you are at their page!
