Your nonprofit source for Bluegrass,Gospel, Celtic, roots, country, modern and traditional folk music 

Wanted: Rich, famous singer/songwriter or guitar picker needing to make a charitible donation before year's end- please forward this email...  
We've always thought that if some superstar like JT or Bob Dylan found out about us, they would want to support our important work with a HUGE DONATION. There's a great organization "Music Maker Relief Foundation" that supports blues players- I understand they get thousands each year from some big rockers- well, we need some big folkers to step up.  
       You don't know any??? Well, you just proved the point- it's always been hard for "noncommercial" artists to survive in a commercial environment. Fans of dance and theater have long known that public support is necessary to keep these arts a vibrant, living part of our communities- folk musicians are traditionally not so organized; we're an anarchic group, on our own, struggling to be heard over the constant din of commercial noise.  efolkMusic's mission is to help these talented independent artists
     Our music service brings together fans and musicians, with resources like our folk festival listing, our folk radio listings, live performance schedules, blogs, the TuneShop archive of fiddle tunes, expert music reviews, artist services, plus MP3 and CD sales and distribution.

     We distributed 26,000 promotional mp3s last year, and had over almost two million visitors to our website- won't you consider making a donation to help us "pick it up & carry it on"? Your donation is tax-deductible, of course.

   Thanks again- stay tuned!

      Chris Frank
      Chief Musical Officer and Bottle Washer
