Beloved venues have closed their doors, social distancing measures have limited audience engagement, and performers have had to deal with the loss of a crucial aspect of their lives. With no other choice, Lincoln musicians have spent the past 10 months applying their creativity to finding new ways to perform, rehearse, and interact with the community.
