What can Bluegrass Learn from the Jamband Model

My friend Zack from the Birdhive Boys, went down to IBMA and got to participate in this interesting seminar. In addition to what was written below it talked about, engaging online communities and going international.

What Can We Learn from the Jam Band Model?- NCC 109

Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010

10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Moderator: Chris Harris, McCoury Music

Panelists: Barron Ruth, agent, Skyline Music
Ronnie McCoury, artist, The Del McCoury Band/ The Travelin’ McCourys

Artists, managers, labels, agents and promoters are always looking for new ideas on how to reach fans. This seminar will explore some of the things that have worked well in the jam band scene and how they can be used in the bluegrass world, how in some cases the scenes/music are merging, and other ideas on how to grow an artist’s fan base, as well as bluegrass as a whole.
