In the latest episode of Pause/Play, we tackle the question, “To play, or not to play?” We asked 15 Austin musicians the same questions: Have you performed during the pandemic? Are you ready to perform now? What would it take to make you feel comfortable performing the way we used to pre-pandemic?

Their answers provide insight into what it’s been like to be a musician during the pandemic and what kind of decisions artists are faced with now that more people are getting vaccinated and COVID restrictions are loosening.

In this episode you’ll hear from:
