IT’S a truly dreadful time, we all know, but many pubs and clubs are staying open and continue to host live music this week as they try to keep their businesses going, albeit while they still can and before any lockdown is enforced by law.
Obviously, it’s a personal choice of the venues and the musicians involved, just as much as it’s a personal decision of people to either attend or not.
We’re fortunate to live in a country where we still have that freedom, for the time being anyway…
The situation is as serious as it is volatile and things are changing by the hour, so please check with the venue before venturing out during the current situation.
Be sensible, stay safe, stay healthy, let’s help each other get through this and let’s hope it’s only temporary…
Till next time, hopefully…
