GOOD NEWS! My lovely band, Blackberry Winter, has been accepted into the Missouri Touring Artists Program, and, by extension, to the regional touring performers roster maintained by the Mid-America Arts Alliance. What this means in practical terms is that any event in Missouri sponsored by a not-for-profit organization that wishes to hire us to perform at that event will, under this program, be reimbursed for 60 percent of our fee. It means we can play for folks who couldn’t ordinarily afford us and at the same time be paid a reasonable fee for our work. Likewise, in the five state (excluding Missouri) region encompassed by MAAA, any non-profit in Nebraska, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas can hire us and be reimbursed for 40 percent of our fee. So if you’re located in any of those states and would like us to come and perform in your town, get hold of the local entity that brings the arts into your area, and have them apply for this funding. We’d love to see you, and get paid a reasonable amount, and not have that amount be a burden to the agency that hires us. Contact me at email@example.com or Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
