The COVID-19 coronavirus has hit the Shreveport and surrounding areas art community hard. However, local businesses are helping out artists that still want to entertain their fans.
As you all know the concerts, events, and any other artistic gathering has either been canceled or postponed. Due to the Coronavirus, artists such as: videographers, photographers, musicians, comedians, and others are hurting to not be able to perform in front of their fans. Local businesses such as Fairfield Studios, Young Pros Entertainment, and Scott Floyd Crain are partnering together to help musicians with live concerts virtually.
Fairfield Studios will offer their studio for free to musicians and artists to live stream shows as a fundraiser. This initiative will help regain some income that has been lost while still providing entertainment to the Shreveport-Bossier area. We talked with the owner, Clint McCommon, about why they are doing this. He said, “We just want to help in any small way we can. We have an amazing community that supports one another. So anything we can do, even in small bits, helps.”
They are grateful to be in a position to help the community and definitely encourage viewers/fans to watch live and donate to the artists. The first Shreveport Live Aid is taking place currently. Local talent artists include: Old Whiskey Revival, Hwy Lions, Molly Hiers Comedy, and Lemon Pop Drag Performance. The start times and dates will vary. You can keep up with the latest information and donate by checking out their Facebook page here. If you are a local talent or love music entertainment, please support and keep the music going! Artists interested in a streaming time slot are more than welcome. Contact Clint McCommon by email at Clint@fairfieldstudios.com
