We think it’s time to recognize the folks who make Nashville a more welcoming place, for all of us.

Of course, that includes the business community, who have a large part not only in making Music City a better place to live, but who do so while lending their support to artists and creatives of all kinds.

‘Come Together’ Online for No Place for Hate on Friday, April 3

Even in times of pandemic worries and social distancing, our communities are not homes for hate: That’s the message more than a dozen musicians from across the Mid-Atlantic will come together online to share next week.

The virtual “Come Together” concert at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) on Friday, April 3, will feature live performances from the musicians’ own homes, which are scattered across Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, as well as the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas. The benefit event supports No Place for HateĀ®, a 20-year old initiative of the Anti-Defamation League that is present in hundreds of school districts across the country.

Underground Writers Round Livestream for Tornado Relief on Friday, March 27

A couple weeks ago, we had to make the decision to postpone our March Underground Writers Round with AGD Entertainment, citing what were, at the time, growing concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19.

We all know the story from there. However, even though we can’t gather in person, music and community will always find a way!

March 20 Underground Writers Round Postponed

With events in Nashville and nationwide being canceled left and right as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, we have concluded alongside our partners at AGD Entertainment (Zero To 60 By AGD) that it is in the best interests of everyone — staff, performers, and patrons alike — to postpone our March 20 Underground Writers Round. We find that the best way to prevent worsening the outbreak is to prevent it from entering the building, and there are a lot of unknowns about who might currently be carrying the virus. We are gutted that we have to do this, especially considering the charitable nature of this month’s event, but we do feel it is the responsible decision for all involved.

We will be rescheduling all of these performers in conjunction with AGD Entertainment at a future round to be determined. Also, we will be setting up a link for those who wish to donate to Hands On Nashville, whose disaster recovery efforts from the March 3 tornadoes still continue.

We appreciate your understanding, and hope to be able to return to Douglas Corner Cafe for our next scheduled round on Friday, April 17.

Yours in Music
