Just wanted to remind everyone about the concert Saturday for our dear friend Reba.  There are still tickets available (vax and masks required) or you can listen in the comfort of your own couch.  Hope to see you there.  Sherry and Steve

“ALL WIGGED OUT: THE MUSICAL”

As above, Institute of Musical Traditions is pleased to assist in sponsoring “ALL WIGGED OUT: THE MUSICAL” starring Marcy Marxer. Mainstays of the roots music scene in the greater Washington area, mentors to generations of musicians, and heroines in family music, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer have continuously created music and events that serve the community. This production is a service to anyone going through cancer, their healthcare team, loved ones and community. 
 
IMT is helping raise $100,000 to help cover the costs of a high end film production of the musical - a pivot from the live performances originally planned before the pandemic closed theaters. All donations are fully tax-deductible either via GoFundMe or via check made directly to IMT with “ALL WIGGED OUT” in the memo section.
 
More info at imtfolk.org.


Other Area Events

With Covid-19 comes cancellations and it would be useless to try to guess when a regular events calendar might resume. However, there are still many online events to "attend" and all of our organizations can be supported in different ways.
One of our fellow local-music organizations, FocusMusic is maintaining a great list of their alumni performers' upcoming webstreams. We've got a lot of crossover with FocusMusic - take a look at focusmusic.org/Online-Shows
