Send material for IBMA week

Rienk Janssen, International member of the IBMA's board of directors, sends this message:

The European Bluegrass Music Association (EBMA) again will have a booth at IBMA's Business Conference (Trade Show) - only during the week, not during Fan Fest. Also, together with Nechville Instruments, the EBMA will host 'Foreign Affairs', a number of after-hours showcase performances, focusing on non-US bands and artists. (More information about IBMA's event: here).

What we try to do, is promote whatever is happening with the music outside of the USA (not only in Europe). For this purpose we encourage anybody who is active with bluegrass music in other countries than the US (bands, promoters, associations, songwriters, festivals, etc.) to send us materials that we can either show and/or hand out to interested parties during the conference. (If you will be in Nashville, you may also bring your things to our booth, early in the week.)

So please send us your POSTERS - FLYERS - CDs etc. (I will not be able to return leftover materials to you by mail!)
