I will be helping Peter put together the most comprehensive Blues and Roots Gig Guide we can for the website and for the newsletter. We have talked about putting together a newsletter that will include a number of regular features, as well as Gig News, Membership items, Reviews and Interviews. We want to include information about Touring Acts, a Festival Corner, publicising local and national Festivals and information about Grants and other support available for Blues and Roots artists. We are also talking about presenting the occasional bit of Blues and Roots history, even some items on favourite instruments, one of these will be called Guitar Speak and written by our patron, Chris Finnen. you can subscribe to our Newsletter Here
We will do our best to track down the information you want and to share the information you want to share with us. We will try to run your contributions on the website and to squeeze them into any printed publication we create. Soon we hope to have the best Roots and Blues news information in Adelaide available on line and in a monthly A4 Black and White magazine format, distributed to local Blues and Roots venues, featuring the ARBA Gig Guide.
All this takes your support. We want photos, gig reviews and promotional material. We want CD's for review and we want uploads of live gigs, more details of this soon. As the website and the newsletter grow we will do our best to entertain you with Competitions and other features. We are also talking about a Classifieds section and taking gig and other advertising to pay for the printed edition. Contact us here
