Q&A For Online Sessions III: Managing Performers, Singers, and Listeners

This is the third in a multipart series of Q&A* about the burning question of the hour in the Corona Kerfuffle. How can we sing together on the internet?! Part I reviews the basic question of Is It My App or My Internet? with tips on how to check your network latency (lag time) for live digital video and audio.

I spent six hours in Donegal last weekend with the Inishowen Trad Song Circle and learned a lot about livestreaming and effective session hosting. We've since applied our learnings to the Online Ballad Sing, the Portland Pub Sing, a houseconcert with Debra Cowan, and a ballad class and session with Elizabeth LaPrelle.
