Ross Ainslie & Tim Edey
2020 summer gig
I just discovered this virtual concert from July 2020 AND IT IS SOOOOOO AWESOME.
With Tim Edey's inventive and high energy guitar playing and Ross Ainslie's musical badassery, this duo is not to be missed!
Plus, the gig starts with some giggles b/c of a unique bicycle that distracts them. Adorable.

Jacob Collier absolutely blew me away with this amazing collection of songs, performed by himself and 3 of his clones. I don't know how many times I've watched this video. And once you start here - don't stop. You'll find a wide range of J.C. videos on youtube - live-streams, music vids, masterclasses, etc.

Sudan Archives is a wildly creative musician and singer who initially picked up the violin to learn some fiddle tunes. And after mainly self-teaching herself to play, she went on to meld traditional, classical, and more contemporary genres into something completely her own. And it is COOL.

Just when it seemed like concerts could start picking up again in the UK this fall, they went back into lockdown. So Johnny Flynn & Cosmo Sheldrake switched gears and made a recorded concerts for viewers, as a fundraiser for Help Musicians. Click below for details on how to support this cause!
É.T.É. Homegrown Concert

É.T.É. is a trad band from Quebec that I fell musically in love with a few days ago when they performed at Vermont's New World Festival in Randolph. Their music is inventive, captivating, and full of life!
So glad they're being featured through the Library of Congress. Take a listen!

Amanda Palmer was on tour in NZ when the covid-19 pandemic locked down the country. Now living there for the time being (originally from the US), she's still out and about, playing emotional and music-packed shows (their lockdown worked and covid is quite minimal) and creating art!
