The Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway — which hosts an annual prog-rock festival, ProgStock — will present four days of prog and other forms of music, April 17-9 and 21, as part of the ongoing UnCancelled Music Festival. It can be seen at uncancelledmusicfestival.com.

Tickets, available on a pay-what-you-can basis, are available directly at stageit.com/UMF-UCPAC, with some of the proceeds going to the artists and the venue, as well as the Recording Academy’s emergency financial assistance program, MusiCares.

ProgStock organizer Ann Rinaldi will be curating the talent.

Performers will include Joe Deninzon of Stratospheerius, Chris Clark of Brand X, singer-songwriter Dean Friedman, Dave Bainbridge of Iona, Harry Waters (son of Roger Waters), and contemporary-jazz musician Steve Oliver. They will all be performing live, from their homes.
