Do you love bluegrass? I know I have asked this before but we need volunteers for BMAI to do marketing, fundraising, grant writing, obtaining sponsors, and help to promote events before they happen. Would you like to be a part of our team?? Commitment to bluegrass and our goals is a must. I've had people say they will help and then bail when the work begins. #helpkeepbluegrassalive #iowabluegrass

LOOKING FOR DECEMBER HOLIDAY MUSIC BY IOWA ARTISTS With Halloween done and gone, it’s time to get ready for the December holidays. So Iowa Music Showcase is looking for any music of any genre by Iowa (or Omaha, Quad Cities, or Sioux Falls) artists that have to do with Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, or any December holiday, or even just about December or winter. To get an idea of what I'm looking for, here's what I did the last two years - http://iowamusicshowcase.blogspot.com/search/label/holidays If you have something, please send an email to [email protected]. Please share with anyone and everyone who might be interested!
LOOKING FOR IOWA HALLOWEEN MUSIC Well, October is around the corner. And that means it’s time once again for Iowa Music Showcase’s Halloween episodes! So if you’re from Iowa (or Omaha, Sioux Falls, or any of The Quad Cities), and you have a song that’s eerie or spooky, or deals with gooblies and goblies, or even regular fears, then feel free to send an audiofile to [email protected]! Please share with anyone and everyone who might be interested!
