May brings us even more options for live music as the weather warms up and more places begin hosting live music again. Many farmers markets are hosting live music again this year, Bethlehem kicks of their “Tunes at Twilight” series tonight, Allentown will begin hosting live music during happy hour on the arts walk every Thursday starting 2 weeks from today and the list just keeps growing. Of course, we still have to be mindful of safety precautions but, things are beginning to look a little more “normal”. If you are still not ready to venture out to one of the many performances this week, please consider supporting the music venues by ordering take out or delivery then, tune in to one of the on-line shows. Either way, please support local music and the venues that bring it to us every week.
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.
