Weekly Music Lineup – 6/3/21

Here we are in June with more “April showers” in the forecast. Let’s hope the weather forecast is wrong for tonight – at least for the sake of outdoor music. There’s plenty going on in this weeks music scene so, let’s get out and support live music AND all the great venues that offer it !

I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who contributes to this post every week and keeps me up to date on what you have going on. I couldn’t do it without you ! And, of course, thank you to all the weekly readers and followers ! If you would like to see your events advertised here every week, simply let me know your schedule by Wednesday evening. Whether your event is live and in person or on-line, you can promote it here. Use the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger or email at lvvoicesofthevalley@gmail.com.
