Performing During The Pandemic
It is unthinkable not to be singing and continuing involvement with performing despite the challenges of the pandemic. I just couldn't manage to stop what is so important. So, I partnered with long-time friend and fellow singer, Franny McCartney to produce songs while doing what was necessary to keep safe. We've been producing "pandemic parodies" on my patio, "Graceland Terrace." We performed songs like "I Love Being Here With Me, (which based on Peggy Lee's Song, "I Love Being Here With You.)" Also "Boredom Grows, (which is based on Cole Porter's song, "Anything Goes.)" It was fun to poke holes in the life we have had to live under the quarantine, masking and so many other restrictions. More recently Franny and I co-wrote our first song collaboration, "Corona Blues," a blues tune that shares the notion of being "cautiously optimistic," that we'll get through the pandemic soon!
Thankfully, we keep singing and satisfying the "itch" of being musically productive. You can find these videos on YouTube at #lynnkellergracelandterrace, or on Facebook, Lynn Keller Baygan.
