Mindy Fried, an organizer of the music event, said that between 7,000 and 8,000 people attended the Porchfest. “The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and it’s very moving for us. We believe that this speaks to the universal power of music and people’s hunger for community,” she said. (Photo by Sue Dorfman)
