Can’t Stop the Blues (dot com)

There is a start-up website dedicated to helping blues artists continue to have an audience during this time when they are cancelling events, and they’re streaming their shows from their homes and other intimate environments! Sunday night Selwyn Birchwood was playing and then later that evening was Nick Schneblen. Tuesday evening is JP Soars. These are live events. Across the bottom of the screen they scroll where you can send tips for the artists, which appears to be about $5 per show and helps to keep the artists going since they can’t tour. A great way to Keep The Blues Alive!
