Folk society to livestream concerts starting April 11
Those looking for a virtual "night out," when we all have to stay in will be interested in checking out the Haliburton County Folk Society's live-stream concert series, set to feature Albert Saxby and Cassidy Taylor in two concerts this month.
The folk society has postponed and cancelled its other activities due to concern about the potential spread of COVID-19, so it will be live-streaming four concerts, starting on April 11 at 7:30 p.m. on its Facebook page.
"We had a very successful dry run of this concept last week with the support of Canoe FM Radio Hall," a press release from the folk society says. "The performers were our own Nick & Benton (Nick Russell and Benton Brown). This concert helped us work out many of the issues associated with presenting a quality live-streaming concert."
More than 200 devices connected to the live event, demonstrating to organizers there is demand.
All concerts will be free, but will include a donation component for those who want to offer the artist a tip.
Schedule: April 11 at 7:30 p.m.: Albert Saxby; April 25 at 7:30 p.m.: Cassidy Taylor.
