Christopher Duigan’s popular Musical Revival’s livestreams celebrated its 100th session last weekend (March 12-14, 2021) with popular James Grace (guitar).

Duigan explains: “This past week we focused on selections from the previously recorded albums Picnic Piano and Nocturne Café. They have been out of print for a number of years but still receive air time on national radio. I am sure many who purchased the original CDs have worn them out! Good news is they are now uploaded to all major streaming platforms including AppleMusic and Spotify. It is worth subscribing to either to access the enormous amount of music available online. More of my albums will follow including a previously unreleased selection, Moments of Night.”

This week marks the culmination of an entire year of twice-weekly livestream sessions! Duigan will present something uniquely engaging and spectacular for the occasion on Saturday March 27, 2021:
