Welcome to the FINAL week of
Masquers on Demand
What a summer this has been! We’ve so enjoyed meeting you here each Wednesday, a chance to steal away for a few minutes and enjoy great music, art, and performances from our extended family. We hope you have enjoyed it too! For this final edition, we feature Sing for America with two amazing 80s anthems lead by the powerful Niki Harris. Birches Bend takes back to a fun Taco Jam in Oakland (back before COVID19) to enjoy a powerful rendition of a soulful spiritual. And we close out our Masquers on Demand series with Low Pirates on High A Seas, a live radio play from Four Eyed Jacks Productions and Bill Chessman. Scroll on and enjoy. And, don’t be a stranger. We will have more exciting content for you soon!
“Higher Love” featuring Niki Harris
Love was celebrated at the 2018 Sing For America Concert. You can actually watch most of the concert by visiting SFA’s YouTube Channel here. The highlight of the evening came when the chorus joined forces with the powerhouse, Niki Harris, for some 80s love-filled classics.
“I Want to Know What Love Is” featuring Niki Harris
Niki continues to sing about love with this classic 80s power ballad. The Sing for America Foundation of San Francisco combines your love of the arts with social media skills to help you fund your charitable interests – arts, health, welfare – whatever social good you serve. Learn more about Sing for America.
A HUGE THANKS to Sing for America for their generous support in 2020!
“Wayfaring Stranger” performed by Birches Bend & Friends
One of the most beautiful parts of bluegrass and old-time music is the community the musicians build through jamming together any chance they get. A regular before COVID19, Birches Bend and their friends would meet up at a local restaurant for good food and great music! This lovely rendition of Wayfaring Stranger comes from a Taco Jam night nearly a year ago. I hope you love it as much as I do!
