Markham Arts Council (MAC) and Thursday Nights at the Bandstand (TNAB) have announced a partnership arrangement in MAC’s Virtual Artist Unplugged series.
“This partnership allows us to go beyond our member base and help more local artists,” says Deepti Aurora, Chair, Markham Arts Council.
Artist Unplugged is Markham Arts Council’s initiative that focuses on promoting the works of local established and emerging musical artists virtually during these unprecedented COVID-19 times.
TNAB tribute artists will be showcased in the Artist Unplugged Thursday’s schedule commencing December 24 at 12:30pm featuring the exceptionally talented Elton Rohn Band performing classic hits of Elton John.
“We are thrilled to have TNAB’s tribute artists virtually contributing to the Artist Unplugged series. The pandemic has affected live music and musicians exceptionally hard. To be able to bring the musical works of TNAB’s artists virtually to fans of live music through these unprecedented times is an outstanding opportunity,” says Bill Dawson, Founder and Organizer of TNAB’s live music program.
The series broadcasts as webisodes on the MAC Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/artsinmarkham and the MAC YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-GR8wCD_yCgmPyECdwkZ1w on Thursdays at 12:30pm. Replays of the webisodes are also available for viewing.
