About Abby Becker & Nellie Sorenson​

Abby Becker and Nellie Sorenson having been singing together since they met over a bonfire, many years ago when we could still have parties. They have appeared together in beloved folk pop outfit Haint Blue, the dreamy Sweet Saro, and legendary game show house band The Let Downs. There is not much lovelier than two friends who enjoy making music together as much as these two: expect a mix of deep cuts and covers in two part harmony, accompanied by guitar and mandolin. Abby Becker is a member of Cora Sone and Trucker Talk; Nellie Sorenson is a member of Haint Blue and makes ceramics.


About Sidewalk Serenades:

Creative Alliance believes that a Baltimore without live performances is a Baltimore without joy – and we won’t stand for that!

As you likely know, working musicians, dancers, magicians, burlesque performers, aerialists, and other performance-based artists have had their gigs and their livelihoods cancelled for the foreseeable future. Join Creative Alliance in creating performance opportunities for these artists throughout Baltimore while simultaneously respecting the need for everyone to keep a safe distance.

Beginning this week Creative Alliance will offer you the opportunity to have a short performance with two to three songs delivered to the front of your home (or a friend/loved one’s home) for a small fee.

Performers will come to the confirmed address, text the residence upon arrival and, like a burst of sunlight through these gray skies, share their talents from the sidewalk. The donations from each of these performance events will be shared between the artist and Creative Alliance to help keep the arts alive and thriving in Baltimore!


The Basics:

  • Performers will come to the front of your (or loved ones) home and will perform for 15-20 minutes.
  • Concerts will be scheduled on the hour, and you can purchase them on the Creative Alliance website.
  • Sales end when each slot is booked OR 8pm  the day before the concerts.
  • If there is poor weather, concerts will be rescheduled to the next nice day.


What if I want to purchase a concert for someone else??? 

  • Just leave the name, address, and cell number of the person the concert is for in the COMMENTS Section when you check out online.


What if I live in an apartment?

  • Performers will not enter an apartment or shared home but can perform in front of the complex. This situation is better suited for louder musicians (horn players, trios etc).


What if I would like a performance but just can't afford it at this time?

While there is a fee per concert, there are opportunities for those without the means to still have some music in their lives. Musicians have been asking to do additional performance gratis in such a case for the community. If you are in need or work at an organization where you still need to congregate (a hospital, perhaps) and have a safe space for a performance to occur, reach out to to coordinate.
