Make Music Boston Mass Appeals

Ever wanted to learn how to play the harmonica and kazoo? Do you have a ukelele laying around that you never learned how to play? Maybe you’ve been waiting for the right time to learn how to bucket drum? Well, now’s your chance!

On June 21st, Make Music Boston festival will fill Boston’s outdoor spaces and music venues with live performances, free and open to the public.
