If you did not catch the news shared last week in Brick Fields update below, we now know the schedule for some awesome Arkansas summer blues and soul music that you can enjoy virtually. Please check out the article below about the Pine Bluff Summer Set series. Rachel's segment will be on Friday, July 10th at 7pm. Beyond Rachel's segment, don't miss all the other awesome Pine Bluff artists as they demonstrate the heart of Delta Blues and Soul.
Additionally in this issue we are sharing a statement about blues music and the realities of systemic racism over the years in America. Blues adds a beautiful way to come together through our love of the shared art form known as the blues. We encourage each of you to listen and share the message the blues offers.
Finally, as the number of cases of Covid 19 in NWA continue to surge, 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. Check out the updates in the local artist support column below. In it you will find information on how to connect with and support some of our local musicians.
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!
