Tune in on Friday, November 8th around 1pm as Joe Kendrick talks with James Caldwell, conference manager of the Midatlantic Music Conference. Joe will be taking part in the largest conference in the midatlantic region that evening in the conference's opening Panel 6-7p.m. in the NoDa district of Charlotte at the Chop Shop: "Music, Entertainment and the MidAtlantic Scene", focusing on regional issues and resources.
Joe's interview reveals some of the pleasant surprises about the Midatlantic Music Conference in this conversation about discovering a much larger world of music in our own back yard. There are a number of big players in the music business attending, like grammy winning, multi-platinum producer Bruce Irvine, ReverbNation co-founder Lou Plaia, hiphop icon Parish Smith, Berklee College of Music music business/managment chairman Don Gorder, and many more. Did you know that Appalachian State University's Hayes School of Music has a record label run by students? Caldwell explains how they bring their Split Rail Records showcase Saturday to the Chop Shop, and much more about the business of music and useful resources right here in western North Carolina.
