The independent musician’s organization Just Plain Folks is presenting their huge awards show this weekend in Nashville, Tennesee, and it’ll be webcast live, with a showcase night tonight and the awards ceremonies on Saturday. To check out the webcast, go to the Just Plain Folks website.
Here’s more from Brian Austin Whitney of JPF:
The JPF music awards are the largest ever conducted in world history and took 17 months to complete. We had 560K songs and 42K albums entered from 163 countries around the world. It’s all done for free and as a labor of love by a staggering number of judges (we had over 10,000 judges assigned in the last round alone). We have 33 performances from artists around the world representing the 93 genres. Among the folks performing include Gretchen Peters, Jeff Oster & Michael Manring, Sekou (tha Misfit), Donna Ulisse, Russell Smith & the Amazing Rhythm Aces, Jasmine Cain as well as international artists from Uganda, Taiwan, Japan, Saint Lucia, Israel, Canada, Guam, Denmark (3 of them.. must be something in the water!), Faroe Islands and many more. Tune in and see our community recognize some wonderful music from around the world.
If you’re looking for something to do on Friday night (tonight) we will also webcast our Pre-Awards Showcase where we’ll have about 50 nominees from around the world each doing a song starting at 6PM US CST. That is taking place at BB Kings in Nashville and can also be seen on our home page at http://www.justplainfolks.org.
We’d love to have you join in on the fun and we know that many of you, especially our international members, could afford the flight, so our friends at SyncLive are helping us bring it to you.
Also thanks to our community partners who are helping to make all this possible: TAXI, Disc Makers, CD Baby, Ourstage, Wilshire Media Group & SongU.
