This has definitely been a tough year. Since Covid hit we’ve missed birthdays, festivals, concerts, live music, and get-togethers with friends and families. Some lost their jobs, some lost their businesses, some lost their loved ones. It’s been a tough year all around. But there is always something to be thankful for.
This pandemic forced us to get creative. It forced us to connect in different ways. Musicians have spent more time honing their craft, and learning to give lessons, concerts, and connect with their audience online. We learned how to use zoom to its full potential. We’ve learned how to reach more people and that we can connect more easily than we ever thought possible.
So this Thanksgiving I’m giving thanks for all the musicians out there who have shared their music online, played outside in the elements with masks, and continued to spread joy, even when things didn’t seem so joyful.
May you all have a safe, healthy and musical thanksgiving.
