Best Socially Distant Concert on Wheels: Trunk Bed Sing-Along Tour

While many musicians moved to online platforms during the pandemic to share their music, a Northern Kentucky music teacher opted for something different. Bryan McCartney, a Bellevue resident with a studio in the neighborhood, kicked off his Trunk Bed Sing-Along Tour in March 2020 to bring music to those stuck in lockdown. Folks could sign up for a specific time and day for McCartney to come and perform three songs outside of their home. He packed his piano onto the truck bed and sent flyers and lyric sheets to whoever reserved a spot; anyone and everyone was invited to break out their own instruments to play along from their front porches.
