Week Eight of A Concert A Day is here and North Carolina is giving us three of the best artists they have to offer, with honky tonk-infused Appalachian Bluegrass pickers Town Mountain, acclaimed roots duo Mandolin Orange, and folk rock water diviners Hiss Golden Messenger each representing the Tar Heel State on Pickathon stages Monday, Friday, and Saturday respectively. We’ll also see art pop expressionist Ezra Furman, South Carolina Americana mainstays Shovels & Rope, and Swedish post-punk fusion reactors Viagra Boys in their 2019 Galaxy Barn performance. Finally, to close out the week, we’ll get to see Americana’s marquee monarch Courtney Marie Andrews in her stunning 2019 Treeline Stage performance on Sunday afternoon.
With partnership from The Recording Academy, A Concert A Day brings a previously unreleased concert from Pickathon, premiering each day at 1:00pm Pacific (4:00pm Eastern) on Facebook (across Pickathon, The Recording Academy, artist and partner pages), Instagram, Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, and YouTube. All donations go directly to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, matched dollar for dollar by Spotify up to a collective $10 million through the Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief Project.

About A Concert A Day
As we fight COVID-19 together, the power of music to bring hope, foster community, and encourage mental health is more resonant than ever. With this in mind, we are so excited to present A Concert A Day starting April 8, an initiative to help musicians and artist communities through the Recording Academy’s MUSICARES® organization. During this time of hardship, with so many artists unable to tour and so many people stuck at home, we’re opening our vaults to premiere one full concert a day, streaming for free via The Recording Academy’s Facebook page, Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, and on YouTube as part of #StayHome #WithMe. All donations received will go to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund
