Family Music Hour – Virtual Series

Week 4 – Mike’s Picks

This Friday, July 24th at 6 pm we will be presenting the fourth and final episode of the Family Music Hour’s “Covid 19” online show.  Don’t miss this exciting conclusion of the 4-part series featuring some of the Valley’s greatest musical families!

Family Music Hour founder and visionary, Michael McQuilkin, has this to say about the virtual series:

“This Friday night’s episode of the show is entitled “Mike’s Picks.” We’ll be showing some my all-time favorite performances from the past 18 shows. The truth be told, there were so many songs to choose from…249 in fact! So if you don’t see your favorite tonight, I’m sure there will be a Season 2 of the series down the road. Among the featured performers are Indigo Jenkins, John Cunningham, Isabella Mathews, Lila Fox, Katherine Wethington, and Kevin Meade. We’ll also have a short clip from Tom and Amy Valen’s upcoming documentary movie about the making of the Family Music Hour.  Join us as we conclude our journey through the many great moments of the Family Music Hour!”
