The best free concerts and live streams to watch while you’re in quarantine

You’re spending a lot of time at home. So are celebrities, musicians and actors. Since they’re not able to perform in front of crowds, they’re taking to Facebook and Instagram for free.

Here’s a roundup of the best performances I’m finding. What have you found? Let me know.

On Demand

Andrew Lloyd Webber

The musical theater genius is posting videos nearly daily on his Facebook page while he stays at home. A must visit.

I had multiple recommendations on my Facebook page for the concert put on by for KING & COUNTRY on March 27th. Check out their Facebook page for a great collaboration with Dolly Parton.

Breaking away from music, Steve Hartman, who delivers tear-jerking stories on the CBS Evening News, held a four-day “Kindness 101” course targeted towards kids. It’s good for adults to hear, too.
