NCPR Launches UpNorth Music with Recording Session in Sackets Harbor

Canton, New York, Friday, October 20, 2006 - North Country Public Radio invites musicians in the Watertown region to register for a free recording session in Sackets Harbor November 8-11. A total of 12 slots are available over the four days, with each musical act receiving 2 hours of recording time as well as a $100 payment for their time. Participants will receive a professionally mixed CD of their recordings to use as they wish. They will also be eligible for broadcast and podcast appearances on North Country Public Radio. In order to be selected, musicians must register online at www.upnorthmusic.org. The station will contact musicians selected to schedule their recording session.

The sessions in Sackets Harbor are the first of monthly sessions that will take place in different locations in the North Country over the next year. These recording sessions are part of a major two-year project for which the station received funding from the New York State Music Fund, a grant program of Rockefeller Philanthropic Advisors. Local partners in UpNorth Music are St. Lawrence County Arts Council, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, What A Raquette Music & Dance, and the Akwesasne Cultural Center. For complete information on this project visit www.upnorthmusic.org or contact project coordinator Jill Breit, jill@ncpr.org, 315-854-4974.
