    I am not really qualified to speak on Jazz.

    I just want to point to what has been a very successful venture in getting young listeners interested in Classical Music. This is the Wordless Music Series, visit This is in New York City. It received a big boost from WNYC, Public radio in New York City.

    I think that the country convention is called "Fan Fair", not "Fan Day":

    If this is it...

    Thanks for the heads up. Changed!

    I would have to agree with this article as jazz musicians at times have an elitist attitude - hence the term starving artist. All too often all the efforts are put toward recording a CD or prepping for a show and marketing after the CD is done / marketing for the show is left to a less than grandiose response because there is no real release of information to the general public.

    Great article!

    I really enjoyed this article and totally agree. I am also a huge bluegrass fan. The biggest draw for me into the bluegrass guitar flatpicking world is the opportunity to jam with my fellow musicians. The opportunity to take turns doing one's break with the support of others on a regular basis all year long gives me that sense of community that is missing in modern life today in our country. In my bluegrass world there are web sites and jam listings available to anyone wanting to jam. I always know what is available to me. I do not know of any such opportunity for jazz jams. Do they exist?
