Call to Musicians
Celebrating our 23rd year, the Bainbridge Island Summer Studio Tour is a popular grass-roots art event held in island studios and gardens. With lovely space in the artist’s gardens, musicians can share their gift of live music with patrons who visit the studios over the 3-day weekend. This year, there will be 42 artists in five studios.
The Studio Tour is currently seeking small groups and soloists to sing and play at our four locations during the Tour. Appropriate styles are acoustic, folk, classical, jazz, country, light rock, and easy-going upbeat music that is suitable for all ages. (Please, no lyrics with profanity, or references to drugs, sex, abuse, or violence, this is a family-friendly event!) Professionals and amateurs are both welcome.
Please sign up on the sheets that are linked below – one for each day of the Tour. Musicians are subject to review before the final schedule is set. You will only be contacted if there is a question, or a need for more information. So once you sign up, plan on being at the studio(s) that you chose at the times you’ve selected.
If you need to cancel, you can find a cancellation code in the confirmation email that was sent to you. Please enter this code into the “Cancel your signup” box in the upper right corner of the the sign-up page.
Please allow time for travel between locations if you choose more than one on a single day. Sign up for two consecutive time slots if you wish. Tents, shade, and/or chairs will be provided whenever possible. You will typically be very close to the artists, so please be courteous and adjust your volume so everyone can talk to the artists and enjoy your music at the same time. Bring an extension cord if you need access to electricity. Most studios can accommodate you.
We thank you in advance for volunteering to share your music with the artists and our patrons. If you have more questions, please contact Tour Manager Dinah Satterwhite by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone: 206-842-0504.
