Fairlee Community Arts’s free “COVID CONCERTS” — Every Friday Evening in May at 7 PM
With in-person events impractical at this time, a generous contribution from an anonymous donor is making it possible for Fairlee Community Arts to bring some of the area’s favorite musicians into your homes while also providing these artists with some much needed income.
Every Friday evening in June, from 7:00 to 7:30 PM, visit https://www.fairleearts.org and tune in for a live-streamed concert that will lift your spirits and keep you in touch with the local music scene.
