We’re mixing it up this week. With the return of live music (socially distanced, of course) we thought we’d give you a selection of livestreams and in-person gigs you can catch over the next seven days to ease you back into normality – from a special online event at Glastonbury’s Worthy Farm, to a musical showcase in a Northern Quarter venue. Let’s take a look…

Scruff Of The Neck TV | Mon 17 & Wed 19 May | From 7:30pm | via Twitch

You can always rely on Scruff Of The Neck TV to provide some quality tunes and chats to start your week off right. On Monday 17 May, catch music from the magical Chloe Foy. Wednesday 19 May will feature sets from Glasgow-based artist Morrell and Wigan four-piece Stanleys. It’s all happening over on the SOTN Twitch channel from 7:30pm each evening.
