Main Street Collective - A community musical collaboration formed by Myrtle Tree Arts
Main Street Collective is a Gold Country musical collaboration of talented musicians across genres, featured in the June 24th, 2022 Mt Democrat. Founded in 2021 with monthly performances at Placerville's Green Room Social Club and other local venues, MSC has gathered a retinue of musicians, especially those who work on Placerville's Main St., to present high-caliber live events for the Foothills and beyond. With tribute nights such as "Bowie Night," "J is for Jazz," "Girlz NIte In," "Faux-K-Computer" (a Radiohead tribute) and "In the Flesh - Pink Floyd Tribute Night" - standing-room-only concerts have become a monthly highlight of the local arts scene.
