Story described struggles of musicians during covid

I would like to thank and congratulate Herald writer Sara Bruestle for her insightful pieceabout the band Marina and the Dreamboats (“Marina and the Dreamboats kick offf holidays with jazz-pop show,” The Herald, Nov. 26). In about 800 words, Bruestle not only conveyed all that the reader needs to know about the band’s upcoming show to be livestreamed on Facebook by the Northshore Performing Arts Foundation, but gave her readers a concise glimpse of the life of a performing artist: piecing together a living while developing one’s gift through instruction and stubborn practice, collaborating with like-minded souls who are on the same journey, and sharing the resulting art with those willing to listen.

I’d never heard of Marina Christopher or the other musicians of Marina and the Dreamboats, but now that they’ve been put on my radar I’ll be trying to pay attention. Again, thanks.
