      The Wintergrass staff is working on putting together the schedule for
      the workshops and hope to have them done very soon. Watch the site and
      the Wintergrass Blog at http://wintergrass.wordpress.com for the
      schedule.

      Here is the info on one of them that should interest bands and band
      members:

      IBMA/Wintergrass

      Musicians and Bands Workshop

      "Presenting Bluegrass Programs in Schools"

      Presented by Tom Kopp, PhD (Professor- Department of Teacher Education
      at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio) and Nancy Cardwell, Special
      Projects Director, International Bluegrass Music Association.

      Date/Time: Saturday, February 21, 2009

      9:30 a.m. Registration

      10:00 a.m. – noon

      Location: Wintergrass (Tacoma, Washington). Exact location to be
      announced.

      Fee: Free if attendee has Wintergrass weekend pass or Wintergrass
      Saturday pass.

      Includes workshop registration, certificate of attendance, handouts
      and other materials. Those who register in advance with Nancy Cardwell
      at IBMA will also get a complimentary copy of the Discover Bluegrass:
      Exploring American Roots Music educational DVD with lesson plans, CD
      from Rural Rhythm Records, and Bluegrass Unlimited magazine.

      Attendees: Full-time and part-time musicians and bands interested in
      learning how to pitch and present bluegrass concerts, programs, and
      workshops in schools. Class size will be limited.

      Description: A multi-session workshop designed to provide musicians
      and bands with tools and resources to pitch and present bluegrass
      programs in schools. Sessions will include IBMA tools available to
      musicians and bands, mini-grant information, tips from bluegrass
      artists who have been successful in doing school presentations,
      information on how to pitch bluegrass programs to schools, ideas for
      local funding, live demonstration of a program for students, and Q&A
      with a teacher who has brought in bands to perform at his school.

      Benefits: Many professional bands have discovered that it can be very
      profitable to include school programs into the mix of their
      performance schedules.

      o Fees for performing or doing a program
      o Expand the artist's fan base and increase the opportunity
      for future income
      o Sell more products
      o Get free publicity
      o Jumping board to do additional revenue producing work
      (e.g. private lessons, start a bluegrass club program, do workshops,
      do additional performances, consulting, music camps, etc.)

      To register, contact Nancy Cardwell at the IBMA office at toll-free
      (888) 438-4262, (615) 256-3222 or email Nancy at nancyc@....
