Because We Have Music Virtual Concert Series

There’s a whole lot of great music bottled up at home right now with nowhere to go, a mess of creativity hiding under the bed…. and it’s time to enjoy it!  Kid Pan Alley presents a “Virtual House Concert” series featuring some of the finest musicians from Rappahannock Co., the Northern Piedmont, and Central Virginia —  Sunday evenings at 7pm.  Hosted by KPA’s Paul Reisler & Cheryl Toth, each concert will feature local artists performing from their homes in an “in-the-round” format. Read the article in the Rappahannock News.

To get the intimacy of an in-person house concert, we’ll have a “virtual living room” where a small audience can ask questions and talk live with the musicians.  These seats are limited, so sign up below to snag one! Everyone else can watch live at Facebook.com/KidPanAlley/live

Grab a drink and some favorite snacks, put your feet up, and get inspired by the songs and the stories behind them — Sundays nights at 7pm.  The concerts are free, but there will be a virtual tip jar if you’d like to show your appreciation to the musicians.  Thanks to RAAC for their support of this project.

Sunday, May 31st at 7pm • Linda Heimstra with Bob Williams, The Thistle Brothers, Paul Reisler & Cheryl Toth

Linda Heimstra is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist with her band The Nethers Hot Club, offering a lively selection of jazz, blues and Latin favorites from the 30s, 40s and beyond.  She’s a long standing member of the Rappahannock music scene and the local theatre community, and is also a portrait artist and mural painter.  While living at the foot of Old Rag Mountain in Nethers, she’s played with several bands including Blues Fuze, The Lost Beatniks and Tonight’s Menu, as well as The Shenandoah Sheiks.  She’ll be accompanied by Bob Williams.

The Thistle Brothers
Cameron and Devin are a brotherly duo making music for a cause. Each single that they release benefits an organization that helps to make the world a better place. They currently study at Berklee College of Music, the foremost school for songwriting and popular music. Over the years, they have found themselves to be influenced by artists such as Stevie Wonder, The Beatles and Bob Dylan. Consequently, they have slowly acquired talents on different instruments, in songwriting and in producing, creating a sound that falls somewhere between Folk, R&B and Classic Rock. www.TheThistleBros.com
