Hi fellow contra callers,
You might be interested in the following webinar that Folk Alliance International is
offering THIS FRIDAY on livestreaming. The webinar is primarily for professional
musicians but I know some folks are running caller collective gatherings or workshops
online and I think there likely will be lots of helpful information.
I know some of the panelists and they are top notch (e.g., Someone from Canada's
national arts centre is on the list. They are working with artists across all of Canada to
make high quality livestreams from their homes.)
The webinar is free.
More info below :)
