Here is just an upcoming sample of some live streaming opportunities we found that you can enjoy online.
The “Can’t Stop The Blues” Facebook page is hosting live streams of various blues artists left and right. This group is a free platform for touring musicians to perform live during this crisis, in any way they are able. While their shows will be available to you free of charge, they will have a tip jar and/or PayPal or other funding options for them. These will go directly to the bands’ own accounts. If you miss any of the live presentations, you can watch previous shows in the video section of their Facebook page.

Tommy says, “We are arranging for a high-quality audio and video production. Coming to you from The Ice House In San Rafael, CA. They are asking for a voluntary sliding scale cover charge but only from those of you who can afford to do so. If you’re out of work like we are, the show is on us; no need for you pay. If you can manage $5 or $10 that would be great – Donate via our website.”
