On Thursdays We Sing
Jun 22nd @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
A new weekly event taking place on various Porches in Kingfield!
We are not producing maps or promoting a community-wide party but we are encouraging musicians to take to their porches on this Thursday, and every Thursday this summer!, to share their talents with their neighbors! This is the evening to strap on your tennies or jump on your bike and wander locally, to hear whatever may be heard from various musicians. Just look for PorchFest signs popping around the neighborhood on Tuesday or Wednesday as musicians assess their availability and the weather–this will signify which of your neighbors are intending to take to their porch to play for you that Thursday evening.
Remember — the invitation to sing or play from your porch is open to all. We can’t wait to hear the soundtrack of Frozen sung by some 5 year olds, or some Meongyn or other YMCA camp favorites from a group of teens missing their time on the trail. If you want to sing on a Thursday–just go for it. You can request a yard sign if you want to advertise it to your neighbors, or just go impromptu.
While it is a difficult time to promote celebrating, we also know that connecting to neighbors, both who they are and what they do, is a bonding and uniting force in these trying times so we encourage you to be safely out and about in community.
We do encourage:
- All people to wear masks
- All friends not already living in family-units to maintain a 6 foot distance
- If you are considering stopping to listen bring your own blanket or folding chair
- Bring money and your phone for tipping: support our local musicians with cash or credit card tips, in whatever way they suggest, at their home-stage.
