Single Mic Contest at Branson, 17-18 May 2008

Silver Dollar City at Branson, MO, holds its Bluegrass & BBQ festival for the whole of the last three weeks of next May (10 May-1 June 2008). Artists taking part include Rhonda Vincent & the Rage, the Grascals, the Steep Canyon Rangers, and many others.

Other features include the Second Annual Single Mic Championship, to be held on 17-18 May. Both amateur and professional bands are invited to take part. The Grand Prize includes a professional photo shoot and national publicity. Full details for entry are on the website.

Several European bands make expert use of the single-microphone system. However, the championship is billed as 'National', so please check with the festival organisers whether bands from abroad are eligible, before your band makes plans to be in Branson in May.
