John Hart, founder of NewFolkRadio.com, launched the site October 27, 2012 at www.AcousticMusicPinboard.com.

The news site is designed to allow anyone connected with acoustic music in some fashion to become an author and post images and text.

New authors must first register then log-in and post at will. Instructions on how to post are on the site. Understanding that folks in the acoustic music business are busy and may not have time to post, the information can be sent directly to newfolkradio@gmail.com, and the editor will post it.

Artist, labels, festival managers, PR folks, radio stations, and anyone else connected with acoustic music, such as folk, old-timey, and bluegrass, are invited to register and post news, events, reviews, etc. "In this age of discovery by searching, it makes sense to have more than one search result for any given news story or press release you may have, in order to reach a broader audience" Mr. Hart said. "Post on your own blog or website, then add it to AcousticMusicPinboard. Each post is picked up by the major search engines, giving more exposure to the story."

In addition to free posting by those folks in the acoustic music business, the site will solicit articles from established freelance writers familiar with the acoustic scene. 

AcousticMusicPinboard.com has been designed in the style of the popular site, Pinterest.com. Images and summary text appear on the main page. A single click on any headline reveals the full story.

AcousticMusicPinboard is a sister site of NewFolkRadio.com, an organizational member of the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), and a signatory to ASCAP and BMI.
