I'm signed up for the mailing list (and will be signed up to volunteer) at the Boston Celtic Music Festival.
If anyone here is interested in playing at this festival in Boston, MA next year, here's some information I received from its board:
Hello BCMFest friends and supporters-
Well, applications for BCMFest 2010 (Jan. 8-9) are due very soon -- July 1st.
This year we're focusing on the core tradition, so trad ensembles, session hounds, and tradition bearers, please consider applying. But we won't discount new and progressive collaborations, either. If it's Celtic-based, and it's good, BCMFest wants YOU.
Download an application and send it in by the end of the month! If you know someone you think should appear at BCMFest, pass this message along to them. And if you have applied in the past, you don't even need to send a sound sample.
ALSO: In the true fashion of a 21st-century traditional music event, BCMFest is now on Twitter! Click here, and then do a search for BCMFest. Then you keep up with all the BCMFest happenings. http://www.twitter.com/
Thanks as always,
The BCMFest Board
Let me know if you'd like any other help!!
