With Memorial Day behind us, and
June 1st around the corner, one cannot deny that summer is upon us.
I wanted to come up with a "cute" title today, but everything that popped into
my head seemed not cute under the prevailing circumstances. Seems like
just a week ago, I felt encouraged
at the "reopening" process and thought that small music venues might become more and more an option....then came
the startling surge in cases of Covid 19
in NWA. Please continue to take CDC advice and stay safe so we can all meet up again and enjoy our favorite artists as soon as it is safe to do so.
Please continue to cultivate the activities available to support local, regional, and even national artists. If you continue to read on below you will find information on how to connect with and support some of our local musicians. You will also find information about an artist support program initiated by Joe Bonamossa. Please check out his organization and share with others.
Also remember our beloved musicians are strengthened at this time by your love. Let them know you care, let them know how their music brightens your world, and if you are in a position to do so, support them through online means.
Finally, please continue to communicate with us any and all information you might have on how we can all best stay connected to YOUR favorite artists!
Feel free to share the best of regional, national, and even international musicians you might be following. Please consider sharing your connections with our readers. If we can come away from this
shutdown with new blues connections, how great is that!
