Call for Local Musicians at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market
Greensboro, NC – Greensboro Farmers Market Inc. announces a call for local musicians as part of their place making efforts for the local community. The Greensboro Farmers Curb Market (501 Yanceyville) is recognized as hub of activity and gathering, a longtime Greensboro tradition. A typical market Saturday has 1,500 patrons, increasing to as many as 5,000 on peak summer days. The market offers several opportunities for local musicians at the market:
· The market hosts a monthly fundraiser event each month to help underwrite the cost of operations. The market schedules individual, duos or groups for two slots: 7:45am-9:30am and 9:45am-11:30am. A modest guarantee stipend is provided to supplement tips.
· Every Saturday, May through November, the market offers outdoor busking options (weather permitting and not for above mentioned fundraiser events). Musicians will setup on the lawn and be supplied a small riser under a designated tent with electrical hookup. The market will purchase a CD from the performing musician(s) and make promotion announcements. Anchor vendors and picnic tables are also located on the lawn.
· Musicians may set up and man their own merchandise tables with cds, t-shirts, and stickers for sale before and after set.
