Singer-songwriter Andi Fawcett has been part of Maine’s local music scene since the ’90s and had consistently been playing shows in southern Maine until it all came to a grinding halt last month. Fawcett makes her live-streaming debut from her home in Windham on Thursday night, and you can expect to hear a mix of originals and covers from artists including Miranda Lambert, Billy Joel, Etta James, Pink and several others.

8 p.m. Friday. Live streaming at portlandhouseofmusic.com.
One of the last live shows that happened in Portland was Gina & The Red Eye Flight Crew who blew the doors off of Portland House of Music on March 7 with an enthralling set of pop, soul, R&B and funk tunes. So it only makes sense that Alibrio, who will be playing a solo show, is part of the venue’s Locked Down with PHOME series. Alibrio will be playing solo piano tunes from her Portland home with the hopes of working a little technical magic to incorporate some of her bandmates. You can expect to hear mostly originals and a few covers, including Eddie Holman’s “Four Walls.” Other upcoming shows include Erica Bryan & Tom Sullivan of West End Blend on April 15, Emily Bodley & Conor Linehan of Flounce on April 17, Lauren Crosby on April 22, Anna Lombard and Jon Roods on April 24 and Dustin Saucier on April 29.
