As the summer zips along, all of us at Folk Alley are working diligently at planning the redesign for the Folk Alley website. A new look and new features are on the way. One in particular that we’re planning is an Online Open Mic. Think of ‘open mic night,’ but heard through your computer. The intent is to provide a place for developing and ‘undiscovered’ artists a place to share their music with other folk music fans. There will be a contest element to this, with fabulous prizes, TBD. We’re in the process of hammering out the guidelines and other details. Since this new feature is intended for YOU, I’d love to hear your thoughts, ideas and any feedback you’d like share on this. Feel free to comment here, or email me directly at Linda at folkalley dot com. Thanks!
