Myc Sharratt Streaming Live | Facebook Live

Recently, and by recently we mean the end of the world, we have been creating ways to stay together while apart. Every musician and their dog has been live streaming and I’m no different.

“bring that smile right here” a talk show style stream has been a fun, for me at least, way to keep engaged with people and learn things I probably never would have learnt about some of my good friends in the music field without asking questions in that format.

“Live is but a Stream” was a wonderful way to create a stage for musicians to play for folks and support a great cause, Food Banks Canada. We raised $1600 and again came together.

Now, I’d like to play some of my songs for an evening. I hope you’ll enjoy them and keep me company.

Happy. Healthy. Home.

The concert is timed for an evening show in Europe and a brunch show in their home province of BC! So get your eggs benny and a coffee and sit back and enjoy….

Hear the Music Night

From 2000 – 2005 Hear the Music Night was held every month in Winnipeg, MB. When founder Jon Buller moved to Vernon, BC he brought the popular monthly Christian music concert to the Okangan Valley of BC. For the past 12 years 3 or 4 times a year this event has brought the community of Vernon together for a night of family friendly Christian music. Recently this event returned to their monthly format, with 300 people attending each month. Due to the current worldwide circumstances, Hear the Music has decided to move to an online format. We are busy researching all the necessary information to stream an excellent event, including cameras, lighting, audio recording, streaming platforms and licenses, software, hardware…you name it. Our first online streaming effort went well and we hope to raise the bar by investing in excellent equipment and appropriate audio, video, computer and lighting equipment.
