Summerfolk Hosts Open Showcase

Performance showcases are one of the key ways that performers get exposure. Traditionally they’re done at large conferences and professional networking events so that booking agents, venue owners, and artistic directors can see what performers are like live. Years ago, the Georgian Bay Folk Society hosted the ‘Last Chance Saloon’ to give artists an opportunity to earn a spot at Summerfolk. This September we’re modifying the tradition and hosting an open showcase at Heartwood Concert Hall in the afternoon of Sunday September 24th.

Performers will have 12 minutes on stage to impress the crowd, knowing that Summerfolk’s artistic director is in the audience. We do not not guarantee that someone will be hired for the festival. We do, however,  guarantee the opportunity to impress the person who does the hiring.

In order to ensure that acts who are ready for a festival stage get a chance to play on the 24th, we’re screening applicants. Please apply here. There are 12 performance spaces available and they will be filled on a first come basis. Audience are welcome on the day of the show so bring your friends along too.

If it all goes well, you could see the Summerfolk stage from this side next August.

Summerfolk to host Music Biz Conference in Sept

On September 23rd, Summerfolk will host a one-day intensive music business conference in Owen Sound to help aspiring and emerging artists of all ages and genres develop the skills they need to start and sustain robust musical careers.

Performers spend hundreds of hours learning to play  but when it comes to business, practice is difficult and trial and error is expensive. For performers in smaller and rural areas, opportunities to develop their business skills can be even harder to find and lead some aspiring performers to believe that musicians have to move to the city to ‘make it’. When musicians leave rural areas the local culture and economy lose.

Summerfolk has been working to support the local and rural music scenes by hosting monthly music business workshops since January with the goal of helping musicians learn about the business from established professionals. The Music Biz Tune UpConference will concentrate the information from the workshop series and go deeper through ten workshops presented in five timeslots throughout the day.

“We had a great response to the workshops and this conference will let people who missed them get a large dose of professional knowledge quickly,” said Jon Farmer, series coordinator.

 Workshop topics range from learning how to register for royalties and how to book gigs, to an introduction to sound engineering and sessions about performers’ unique legal and accounting issues.

 “We’ve set it up so that there’s  something for the people who want to learn what it takes to get their first paid gigs as well as more specific sessions for performers who have been playing weekend shows for years and want to make music their full time job,” Farmer added.

Thanks to grant funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and sponsorship from Music Ontario, conference registration — a $140 value — is only $50 and includes lunch and dinner. Summerfolk is providing performers who are 24 and younger a further 50% registration discount and is making travel bursaries available.  Online registration is open now at summerfolk.org/musicbiztuneup.
