Although our greatest concern by far is for the people who are sick with the coronavirus and those who will become sick, please realize that this emergency is also a financial disaster for the independent touring musicians who make up the bulk of the performers at Old Sloop Coffeehouse. Many, especially those from abroad, have invested heavily in travel and equipment expenses for tours, and they now find themselves deprived of the income they expected to earn. Please visit their websites, buy their CDs and other merchandise, watch their online concerts, and tip generously.
