This pandemic’s been a tough time for musicians. Clubs are closed, and gigs are cancelled. But our friends at Baltimore’s Creative Alliance had a lightbulb moment. They thought: These musicians that we usually book on our stage, what if we start booking them on stoops and porches? They’d be outdoors, the crowds would be small, just the neighbors on the block. People would be masked up and socially distant. But it’d be a little moment of community, and it’d give these musicians some work.

The Signal: 12.27.13

Dec 23, 2013

  It was a wintry Saturday afternoon in rural Cecil County, Maryland, at a one-room post office turned furniture shop near the town of Elkton.  Outside the old building, a January wind whistled over snow banks, through the bare branches of trees.  But inside, a warm camaraderie was emanating through the room.  Three musicians sat together, acoustic guitars on their knees, trading stories and songs, and bridging an age-span of three generations between them.
