OPEN TO:  IBMA Members and Non-Members! 

Join Special Consensus bandleader Greg Cahill and Monroeville’s Matt Munsey at the next IBMA webinar, hosted on Thursday, March 15 from 6-7:30 p.m. Central: “How to Present & Book Bluegrass Programs at Schools.”
Greg Cahill received the Distinguished Achievement Award from IBMA in 2011 partly for the decades he has spend introducing thousands of young people to bluegrass music at school programs across the country and around the world.

Matt Munsey and his band mates in Monroeville began playing for students at schools last year, with a unique and very successful twist on the same idea.

Learn what works for different age levels and different sized groups and how to keep a young audience engaged and participating, as well as how to book and fund these types of gigs from two veterans. 

The webinar will be aimed at artists, but managers, booking agents, association leaders and event producers may find the information valuable also. 

The fee to join the webinar is only $20 for IBMA members or $40 for non-members. Please call (615) 256-3222 to register.
