Tuesday, April 6 - Out of This Blue, by Ivan Coyote & Sarah Macdougall, 12:00 pm, presented by Intrepid Theatre ~ Online

Out of This Blue is an eclectic selection of the songs and stories that emerged from both artists during this sudden period of stillness and solitude. Inspired by having time to watch the garden turn green in the spring and flower and wilt, infused with the longing and loss that social isolation has brought to all of our lives, and touching on matters of the heart that have always resonated for both of these artists, Out of This Blue is an homage to family, friendship, mortality, and the ability of writing and music to connect us all.

This performance will be available to watch on demand anytime between noon on Tuesday, April 6, and midnight on Sunday, April 11. A password and link will be sent to you via Eventbrite with your ticket so you can access the show during the available dates.
