My 1st live stream concert…

People are invited to make donations to the musician (me) and you’ll be able to do that right here from my website Store or www.paypal.me/kenwhiteley.

I’m ready and excited for my first live stream concert right here from the basement at Roxton Road!  It will broadcast live at www.facebook.com/homeroutes on April 2, this Thursday, 9 p.m. EDT.  I’ll be singing songs from my new album, Calm In The Eye Of The Storm as well as whatever strikes my fancy from the hundreds of songs I know.  I was supposed to be performing in Owen Sound this coming weekend and getting ready for a couple of weeks of shows in Alberta and B.C. through Home Routes/Chemin Chez Nous.  It won’t take the place of actually sitting with a room full of people and singing together but in these unusual times I’m thrilled to be singing for people. The show will also be archived on YouTube later.  Let me know if you can join us or have any requests by email.
