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 May, 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.
AND, on Saturday May 9, you can join your neighbors in creating an original song about your special town under the guidance of Vermont singer/songwriter Jon Gailmor. Details and a link to join this virtual experience will be posted on the FCA website, https://www.fairleearts.org
