Public Live Music Slowly Returns…

Here is a listing of Pennsylvania live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, June 12 through Thursday, June 18.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19/coronavirus situation, many live music venues across the state are not able to host performances at this time. As some restrictions are being lifted locally, some acoustic indoor shows and other outdoor events are beginning to return. However, some bands and performers are staging online performances on social media from their own homes, studios and other facilities. Below are such situations that have been announced (that I am aware of); keep checking back, as this listing will be updated as new shows are announced. Feel free to take in any of these performances, and if a “virtual tip jar” situation is available, please consider tipping these performers, and support them during this time when they cannot earn income playing shows at public venues. Websites for these performers are also listed; please consider purchasing their music digitally or via CD, which is another way to SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!
