The Music: January’s Local & Live Happenings
By Kris Youmans, Special to The Paper
Currently the song remains the same on the music scene as far as events and local venues. Always check ahead to see if your venue has music and of course any changes in their hours of operation during this time.
There’s a lot going on on-line so support musicians by watching, commenting and& tipping. I have really enjoyed the shows streaming on social media.
Thank you for reading The PAPER and supporting your local independent community businesses.
