We're pleased to learn that Andrew McKnight & Beyond Borders have again received a touring assistance grant and inclusion in the Virginia Commission for the Arts prestigious Touring Artist Directory. This means that eligible presenters within the Commonwealth may be reimbursed up to 50% of the band's fee for performances and workshops. In addition to the band's concerts and workshops, Andrew's solo work may also be covered - we hope that more new presenters will take advantage of our funding and help bring the music to new parts of the state.
For any interested in-state presenters, all the details including links to download the application form are at http://andrewmcknight.net/vca. This funding cycle is for performances between July 1, 2016 and June 15, 2017. We are thrilled to remain a part of this wonderful and critical support to bring performing arts to Virginia's communities large and small in these hard economic times.
