“Festive Fridays” Live Stream Events Begin This Weekend!

Here is a listing of Pennsylvania live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, November 27 through Thursday, December 3.

Due to COVID-19-related restrictions, many live music venues across the area are still not able to host performances at this time. The listing below includes both area live public shows and online live-streaming shows; keep checking back, as this listing will be updated as new shows are announced. If you are attending a public show, be aware that seating and admission may be limited due to restrictions, and masks and social distancing may be required. Please respect others’ personal space if they wish to socially distance from others. For online performances, if a “virtual tip jar” situation is available during live streams, 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!

Among the online live music happenings this weekend is the start of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts’ “Festive Fridays” performances. During December, the Arts Festival will present virtual live music performances each Friday as part of their “December to Remember,” featuring an artists’ market, a holiday home decorating contest, virtual art exhibitions, cooking and home decor demos and other arts-related online events as well. Opportunities will be available to purchase art online and donate to performing artists as well as the Arts Festival itself. The “Festive Fridays” performances will stream on both Facebook and YouTube.
