“Musicians from across the globe, regardless of their differences, are finding common ground through music. Play Music On The Porch Day knows that music is powerful and universal. It doesn’t matter if you play an Oud, a Guitarrón, a Nyckelharpa, or a Guitar. When you pick up your instrument and start to play the world disappears and you get lost in the sounds. Music goes beyond words. It can transcend the most difficult barriers. It ties us together like a thread through our hearts. Our skin is many colors but music is in our blood, our bones and our soul. Musicians from across the globe, regardless of any differences, are finding common ground through their music.”

In Cortez, musicians from the area play around town at local businesses. Listen and enjoy as you shop and dine. The power of music makes us proud to be part of this community and worldwide event!
