Cooperating with social distancing guidelines, Destin singer-songwriter Skylar Capri hosted an island concert in the lake in her backyard.

DESTIN – Like just about everybody else, Skylar Capri is staying home – although she hasn’t felt grounded.

The Destin singer-songwriter, 20, missed another place she calls home, the stage. Amid the coronavirus outbreak, sprang a personal creative renaissance and Capri decided to host a socially distanced neighborhood concert.

“A few of my neighbors were talking about how much they missed live music and going out,” Capri said. “I figured I’d bring a show to them. We asked some of our neighbors around the lake if they’d be OK with it. Everybody seemed to really want that sense of community, too.”

After Capri’s father spread the word via text message, many neighbors brought out chairs and picnic blankets to watch her perform her first concert last Monday. The venue cooperates flawlessly with the need for physical distancing.

“I dubbed it ‘Isolation Island,’ because the island in my backyard is away from everything,” Capri said. “You take a bridge over it and it’s in the middle of the lake. All of my neighbor’s backyards surround the lake, which makes it the perfect venue for social distancing. I can play and be far away from everybody else with my amp and my guitar and my microphone.”

Being on the makeshift stage was a semblance of normalcy. Capri was at home.

“It was so much fun for me because I love playing live,” Capri said. “I miss that type of community. It’s been so cute seeing a lot of my neighbors come out and wave their hands or sing with me or ask for encores. I really miss people and I’ve always been such an extrovert, so having people around has been so nice.”

It must have had a positive impact on her neighbors, too, who insisted she perform a repeat the following Friday and every Friday after that – at least until social distancing subsides. Capri will perform at 5 p.m. Fridays in her neighborhood for the foreseeable future, and will broadcast it live from her Instagram @SkylarCapriMusic.

“COVID-19 has been affecting all of us financially, mentally, socially and it can be pretty scary without hope, joy and some level of normalcy,” Capri said. “My goal for the concert series was just to bring a little joy to my neighborhood and my neighbor through entertainment, singing some of favorite songs I do at shows.”

Capri sang six songs Monday, many from the 1960s and 1970s, which Capri felt her neighbors would recognize, and some newer tracks from artists such as Billie Eilish. She also played “How Great Are You Lord?” Capri is a worship leader at Destiny Worship Center.

“I played ‘Our House’ by Crosby, Stills and Nash, which I think is really representative of how grateful we can be in this time,” Capri said.

Capri played 11 songs at her second concert Friday with socially distanced accompaniment by fellow guitarist and friend Jonathan Riggi. They played The Backstreet Boys’ “No Diggity,” as well as songs by The Beatles, Maggie Rodgers, Lady Gaga and Daniel Caesar.

Capri, who is amid work on her first EP, plans to trickle in original alternative pop rock music at future neighborhood concerts. She is currently inspired by the likes of Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, Julia Michaels and Benny out of New Zealand.

“My biggest goal is to tour nationally with a backing band and share all of my music,” Capri said. “That’s what I’m working toward. It’s definitely been a humbling process that’s taken a lot of patience for sure. But I love the process, and learning and growing alongside some great musicians has been such a blessing. ”
