As we all continue to Shelter in Place and practice safe Social Distancing, we are finding that turning away from the news and focusing on uplifting and hopeful messages provided by artists and musicians and the treasures they create, are quite beneficial.

Local musician Lewis Knudsen is one of the many Quad Citians dedicated to bringing the community positive entertainment through these times. Lewis, however, may be taking local live concerts to the next level for other artists.

Lewis Knudsen is currently (right now!) performing a 12-hour live concert on Facebook! You can find his live stream at https://www.facebook.com/lewisknudsenmusic/. The concert began this morning, Friday Mar 27, at 9 a.m. and will continue all day until tonight at 9 p.m. Stop by and check out the magnificent Lewis Knudsen!
