As live performances came to a jarring stop, musicians have gone online to share their music and connect with audiences. In this edition of Mass Mix, we're celebrating digital performances from artists that are bringing us joy right now.

Christian McNeill’ St. Patricks Day Facebook Live

One of my favorite St. Patrick's Day traditions is watching Boston (via Derry, Ireland) singer-songwriter Christian McNeill perform live at The Black Rose. Sadly, that was not to be this year. Luckily, McNeill took to Facebook a few days after St. Paddy's and played a wide-ranging set that eclipsed 90 minutes and even featured a "virtual tip jar" so viewers could show their support. That support for local artists, venues, and the people that work for them is so vital right now. Boston-based Vanyaland has put together a running list of funds that we can donate to and help keep these folks afloat. So let's all do what we can. -Adam 12, Weekdays 11a-4p, ROCK 92.9

Julia Bullock’s “One by One” on Instagram

Julia Bullock is a friend of a friend of mine — and also one of the opera world's fastest rising stars. I had the pleasure of seeing her perform at Symphony Hall a few years ago, when she was the Boston Symphony Orchestra's featured soprano. For the past few weeks, she has performed #songsofcomfort on Instagram on Sunday nights, accompanied by a pianist. Her selections are always beautiful, and she credits the original artist, name of the song, and the lyrics each time so that I can follow along and add the song to my growing quarantine playlist afterward. It's the musical gift that keeps on giving — and I'm so grateful to her for providing it to all of us, for free, during these uncertain times. -Ellen London, Senior Editor, WGBH

Brandi Carlile covers Joni Mitchell on Instagram

Brandi Carlile is one of the most talented musicians working today in my opinion, and this performance on Instagram proves it. From her home, she covers Joni Mitchell’s “Little Green” with no frills — just her and a guitar. Let’s hope we all manage to find “Just a little green / Like the color when the spring is born.” And while we’re on the topic, I’m giving an honorable mention to Berklee College of Music's impressive performance of "What The World Needs Now" — a virtual orchestra. -Meghan Smith, Digital Producer, WGBH

Anjimile's Live Sessions

A lot has changed for Anjimile since we filmed our Neighborhood Sessions, but there's a lot about "Therapy" that feels relevant during these times. "I am doing what I have to get by" sings Anjimile in this acoustic rendition that strips away the many vocal layers and instrumentation. The lack of harmonies might add a feeling of loneliness — appropriate, given the song's theme of acknowledging the sadness of being rejected by family—but there's also a sense of warmth to it. They also performed a live #TogetherAtHome Session for Above the Basement over the weekend. Anjimile recently signed a record deal and finished recording their new album, but while we wait for it to be released we can support them by buying their music on Bandcamp. -Knar Bedian, Editor in Chief, Sound of Boston

Steve Martin’s Banjo Balm

Two words: “Banjo balm.” That’s all Steve Martin used to caption a Twitter video post he sent out on Saturday, March 21. The legendary comedian then treated his followers to a 78-second musical performance lacking any sort of context or flashy frills in the middle of an undisclosed wooded location. Nope, it’s just Steve in an “02138” Cambridge hat strumming away on his ole’ banjo. Ten million views later, it proved to be exactly what we all needed right now. Thank you, Steve. -Zack Waldman, Digital Social Producer, WGBH

Night Moth and Noble Beast Live Sessions

The Allston basement scene has moved to the living room!Squitch bandmates took to Instagram Live for two live sessions for their solo projects: Night Moth and Noble Beast. The stream was hosted on the Instagram account SLUDGE, which has shifted from posting fliers for in-person shows to being a meeting place for cute, intimate (but socially distant) living room concerts. The artists raised $240 to benefit the Boston Center for the Arts Relief Fundwhile showcasing the talent resilience of the house show scene. -Owen Murray, Music Coordinator at WERS

Live from Home: Chris Thile plays "Radio Cure" by Wilco

Ahoy, indeed! During these strange times, Chris Thile started Live from Home — a digital version of the hit radio program Live from Here — to help musicians keep making and experiencing music when we can't be physically together. Thile kicked off the series in his brother and sister-in-law's closet, performing a breathtaking version of Wilco's "Radio Cure" that melted my heart. Thile is encouraging other artists to join in, and for audiences to support them by buying their music and merch, and through direct donations to the series. -Stacy Buchanan, Managing Producer, WGBH
