While shows are postponed at the theater at 804 Washington St. in Bath, The Chocolate Church Arts Center is presenting Live from Home, a series of concerts performed by regional musicians at home that can be streamed online by audience members via Facebook.

Two concerts will be presented this weekend: Indie-folk band Gentle Temper will perform at 7:30 pm. Friday, March 27, and Yellow Brick Road, A Tribute to Elton John, will be streamed at 7:30p.m. Saturday, March 28.

The free concerts will be streamed via the Chocolate Church Arts Center’s Facebook page. Audience members will be encouraged to donate to help the organization recover lost revenue due to postponed shows, and to support the performers, many of whom also are facing canceled shows and loss of income. All donations will be split evenly between the center and the performers.

Gentle Temper is a New-Age Folk duo from Boston, made up of Ryan Meier and Marion Earley.

Gentle Temper is a New-Age Folk duo from Boston, made up of Ryan Meier and Marion Earley. With ever-expanding instrumentation and dynamically rich live performances, the two musicians have molded their unique sound by constantly pushing the boundaries of what a duo is capable of. Formed in 2016, Gentle Temper found their footing deeply rooted in the vast realm of folk, and write music and lyrics that are focused on topics like travel, mental health, politics and love. The band’s latest single “Triple Dog Dare” is available on all streaming platforms.
