Patched Together From a Distance Online Concert This Weekend!

Here is a listing of Pennsylvania live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, November 13 through Thursday, November 19.

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 many concerts, festivals and annual events that was sidelined for this year due to COVID-19 was the annual Patched Together: A Day of Music to Benefit the Healing Patch. This day-long concert has taken place in November each year to raise funds for the Home Nursing Agency’s Healing Patch program, which provides counseling and mentoring services for young people who have experienced the loss of family and loved ones. In lieu of the public concert this year, Patched Together organizers have instead organized a smaller-scale online event, Patched Together From a Distance, which will take place on Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. on Facebook. The event will feature performances from Rick Wertz, Mellissa Vella and Matt Otis & the Sound. There will also be a presentation by Healing Patch volunteer coordinator Shalen Steinbugl, plus opportunities for the public to make donations to help out the Healing Patch.
