Learn more at playmusicontheporchday.com Play Music on the Porch Day's Message: "The passion for 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 ties us together like a thread through our hearts. Our skin is many colors but music is our blood, our bones and our soul."
