Canton, New York, Friday, November 2, 2006 - North Country Public Radio invites musicians in the Malone region to register for a free recording session in Malone, December 7-10. 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 recording sessions will take place at the Malone campus of North Country Community College.
The recording sessions in Malone will be the second stop on a year-long tour of North Country communities. 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. North Country Public Radio will set up temporary recording studios in each location on the tour. 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.
