Stream Pick: Gilmore Couch Concert

By: Laurie Gallardo

These quarantine times have given way to reflective times, and in many cases, those reflections find new life in the written word. But one isn’t simply compelled to share these thoughts. They’ve no choice but to come out:

“Fields unpicked by hands / Air breathed only by wind/ A sky seen only by the ground / Water drank only by rivers…”

Colin Gilmore has been using these copious amounts of free time we’ve all been dealt to present some cozy live stream musical performances, alongside spouse Tammy Lynn Gilmore, during their Cabin Fever Couch Concert series; hosting laid-back conversations with friends/fellow musicians in Gilmore’s The Walkdown interview show, of which The Mastersons were recent guests, and songwriter Bonnie Whitmore will take part this Tuesday May 5th at 2 p.m. (Central); and embracing the moments of inspirational ebb and flow by writing out the damned uncertainties. The aforementioned quote comes from a poem Gilmore penned recently, one that he’ll share in the next Couch Concert.

“It’s been so much fun seeing our friends and family join us for our virtual shows,” Tammy said. “I think we’re more in touch now than before we isolated.”

Join the party with Colin and Tammy this evening, Friday May 1st, at 6 p.m. (Central) on the Colin Gilmore Facebook page, and get that front row seat on your sofa. Donations are welcome via Venmo @Colin-Gilmore-3 and PayPal at
