Stay The Fuck Home The Music Edition

As we have all found out over the last week, COVID-19 is changing how we interact with each other. For some it will be really hard not being out and and being social. For other’s like me, the eternal introvert, I’m ok not being social. However, whether or not you are ok with being stuck at home, boredom will set in. Personally, I have a long list of things to keep me occupied. I’ve also given myself a bit of a loose schedule for each day, however, I, like everyone else needs stimulation. Over the next few days, I am going to share different things I’m doing, as well as lists of things we all can do to keep ourselves entertained over the next while!

Today’s post is all about music.

Band Camp Is doing an amazing thing. They are bringing awareness to musicians. Due to COVID-19 performers revue streams will be drying up. Go give this a read to see how you can help out.

The Stay At Home Fest is all about online concerts! They have a calendar showing who is playing and when! You can find it here!

Music Therapy is a good way to help out those who are suffering from anxiety and depression. My friend Siân Brown is doing live streams for her music therapy. If you think this is something that can help, follow her on Facebook here.

Friends online shows!
