Americana fans will not have to miss out this year. The Americana Music Association Foundation has announced “Thriving Roots: A Virtual Community Music Conference”. It’s a new online music industry conference experience from Sept. 16-18, 2020. The virtual conference will feature Rosanne Cash, John Leventhal, Mavis Staples as well as AMAF Board Members Jackson Browne, Rhiannon Giddens and T Bone Burnett.
Go Back to the 80’s on June 13 with “Back to the Basement“- a virtual concert to support and honor first responders and health-care workers who are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19.
“Back to the Basement” is intended to bring us back to the days where kids watched
music video after music video on MTV in their basements. If you’re a SoCal native like me and you’ve never seen a house with a basement... well, it sounds cool, so we’ll just go with it.
