Join Strings Attached project for the 2nd annual, “Play Music on the Porch Day” at the Whistle Stop Ice Cream Parlor in downtown Ferguson. Kids from Strings Attached will be making music on the porch at the train depot turned ice cream store from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. AND eating ice cream.

Throughout history it was common to hear live music on porches, in yards and on street corners. Musicians would regularly surround themselves with friends and family to sing and play music together. This tradition is being lost as more people only experience music as passive entertainment instead of as a participatory celebration of life.

PLAY MUSIC ON THE PORCH DAY invites musicians to revive the tradition of gathering, singing and playing music outside with friends and family.
