The Greencastle Virtual Music Festival continues in the comfort of your home this week with “Warm Winter Love,” a program of love songs performed by Indiana singer/songwriters Parker Black, Derek Chastain, Gus Moon, Joe Peters and Linda Hicks, and the Spirit Brothers (featuring Greencastle’s own Tad Robinson).

In addition to the music, a short scene from Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” and two of the bard’s sonnets will be performed by actor/director Gigi Jennewein and several DePauw student actors.

“Greencastle’s Tad Robinson is featured in the Spirit Brothers’ new release “Neon,” which features amazing videography by Lorri Markum,” explains the festival founder and host, Eric Edberg.

“And we are playing Joe and Linda’s ‘Look to the Flowers’ from one of their albums, on which they are accompanied by me on cello and Allison Edberg Nyquist on violin, with a montage of beautiful nature photography by Allison’s husband, Craig Nyquist. Plus we are thrilled that Gigi arranged for these Shakespeare performances. It’s going to be quite a show, very much in keeping with our motto of ‘community through shared arts experiences,’” Edberg said.

The pre-recorded concert goes “live” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and can be heard and seen:
