Charleston Music Hall will mark the release of a vinyl version of a fall benefit concert, recorded six the pandemic stalled shows at the downtown venue.

On Friday, April 2, the Music Hall will mark the release of The Stage Sessions, Volume 1 on vinyl.

The show, occurring a year after the hall shut its doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, is a reprisal of the show recorded six months earlier for Stage Sessions, on Sept. 9, 2020.

The event and the record features 10 local artists, including Marcus Amaker, Mel Washington, Babe Club and more. The original recording took place in an effort to continue making music after six months of the COVID-19 shutdown. It includes a wide range of genres from modern hip hop to classic folk to spoken word to capture Charleston’s diverse musical offerings. 

The show will start at 8 p.m., with tickets starting at $20 — a $45 ticket also gets you a vinyl copy. Tickets will be sold in pairs or blocks of four to ensure social distancing protocols. A portion of proceeds will benefit artists.
