I’d never heard of this annual event until a few minutes ago, but for anyone with a porch who wants to make music on their doorstep, this seems a fun notion. Beginning as an idea in 2013 “What if for one day everything stopped…and we all just listened to the music?” Play Music On The Porch Day is always the last Sat of Aug and runs from 10am – 10pm.
Well, everything has pretty much stopped for most of us this year – and many of us have been grateful that we play an instrument or have been reliant on listening to different music over the last few months.
Naturally, this year the event is all about staying home, avoiding being in big groups and sticking to local rules about singing.
If you fancy a little social-distanced home-strumming you could register to tell others you’re taking part. Or why not look at the worldwide map to see if anyone near you might be playing so you can saunter past in your mask & support them with a friendly wave?
Have fun & stay safe!
