MountainGrass Performances

BGBandThe committee has set out to contact the bands who have made application to the MountainGrass Festival this past month to better understand ABOTMA’s costs to present. ┬áThe committee felt it important to provide adequate lead time for bands to plan to attend the event and thus some may not be available until 2014.

As part of ABOTMA’s aims the committee felt it important to try to work with organisers in other ┬ácities/towns in November/December, to help contracted MountainGrass musicians recuperate costs incurred from performing at the festival.about the possibility of organising/promoting band tours at other cities/towns in November/December.

The Executive has agreed that the MountainGrass Festival will as a matter of principle in supporting the music industry, pay all musicians (even if the fee is obliged to be minimal figure in formative years).
