COMING SOON! Volume 1 Number 1 10th Anniversary Edition VINYL LP Pressing of ORIGINAL SONGS by NCBGMA Member Bands!!!
COMPANION CD WILL BE AVAILABLE IN 2022
We are currently soliciting bands to be included on the project and will be limited to 10-12 songs (one song per band) on each CD/ LP. If your band is interested, email steve@NCBGMA.org as soon as possible. We will be looking for ORIGINAL SONGS written and recorded by the submitting band. The BAND will retain ownership of the song but we are asking for permission to print 1000-2000 copies of the song on each Volume for sale with all the proceeds going to benefit the NC Bluegrass Music Association.
We have enough bands already committed to be part of the project to produce TWO recordings. BUT we will be taking songs for a THIRD Volume. We will have the FIRST CD portion of the Vol 1 finished and ready for sale before the end of this year. The LP may take longer due to backlog of demand on LP companies and time for production. BUT WE WILL HAVE THEM! We plan to have Vol. 2 out shortly after Vol. 1 since we have the music.
Our objective is to: 1) Get exposure for BLUEGRASS in North Carolina 2) Promote 10-12 Bluegrass Association Member bands (per recording) 3) Raise money to help fund the NCBGMA for future projects. If this is successful, we will continue to do Volumes as the songs become available. The LPs and CDs will be marketed on our web site, at festivals and other events.
WATCH FOR MORE DETAILS and CONTACT US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING INCLUDED IN ONE OF THE FUTURE VOLUMES !
