SARATOGA SPRINGS — Search your friends and friends-of-friends on Facebook and you will find them, there to illuminate and entertain. Some of the region’s most talented musicians, poets and artists have taken to a variety of social media platforms to perform their songs and their works-in-progress in the wake of the shuttering of public venues. 

Fans of “good folk” may also want to check out caffelena.org, where the Phila Street café is streaming live shows nightly at 8 on YouTube. This week’s slate includes scheduled performances by Let’s Be Leonard (Friday); Scott Sharrard (Saturday), and The Lustre Kings (Tuesday, March 31). 

Area poets, meanwhile, are engaging the community with video and verse at places like @albanypoets on Instagram. 

And for some irresistible grooves on a national scale, check out the happenings at the “online concert venue”  website stageit.com, where on March 29 the Dollyrots will perform the first of their weekly “pay what you can” acoustic shows live from their home base of sequester: “This is for our fans - and since our kids are cooped up with us they'll probably be around too. Watch us try and wrangle them as the show goes by, or hopefully they just behave themselves haha!” 

A world of creative sound and vision is being made available online during these times. If you know of something other folks should know about, let us know at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we’ll be happy to spread the word.
