“Supper & Songs”: Online Concerts for April, 2020

Dave Bradley kicks off the “Supper and Songs” online music series this Friday, April 3.

With COVID-19 shutting down music venues across the country, Ron Harrington of After 5 Magazine came up with the idea of a series of online concerts featuring north state musical artists. He asked local performing songwriter (and founder of local record label Miracle Mile Records) Jonathan Foster for help, and thus was born the “Supper and Songs” online concert series. Whether you’re already familiar with these artists or discovering them for the first time, I hope you’ll follow the included links and listen to the shows.

Also, I’d like a offer a big thanks to Erin Friedman, who ran her “Singing in the (virtual) Streets” series featuring local performers during the month of March on Facebook.

All shows for the “Supper and Songs” series start at 7 p.m. More shows may be added, so please check back here.

    Thanks, Hal. Had been hearing about the online stuff gearing up .. but just not that familiar to a lot of us yet. And it still helps to have someone steering us to the right dates and places. This one gets a bookmark.
