Having faced the challenges of the Covid situation closing down live music venues, Plug & Play managed to finish its season as a combination of live streaming and live pre-recording. There were many technological and practical issues that needed to be worked through but the last two events passed successfully for the acts and the audience.
With the lockdown continuing we felt that we had an obligation to our musicians and audience to fill the void with an extra event on Sunday 7th June 2020. The event will use the same format as we have used before. The open mic submissions, sent as live pre-recordings, to be viewed on our Facebook group from 7pm and the main act live-streaming from 8pm. We have asked Tim Müller, originally from Penrith but now settled in St Louis having toured the world with Pokey LaFarge. Tim is an excellent musician and an authority on Dixieland and Ragtime music. The act will be paid by donations. This is not the best solution but has worked quite well for the last two events.
