Last Banjo Standing submission deadline is tomorrow

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Think you've got what it takes to play the second annual Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival (December 12 at Congress Theater)? You don't have to crash the stage, Kanye-style, to make your voice heard. But you do have to act fast -- tomorrow is the last day to submit your band's songs to the fest's Last Banjo Standing contest. The winner, to be decided via online voting October 16-31, will get $500 and an opening spot at the event.

Whether you take home the prize or not, you can still go see the music. This year's lineup features Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Dr. Dog, Emmitt-Nershi Band, Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater, Van Ghost, The Giving Tree Band and more. Tickets cost $35, but keep an eye on this blog for a chance to win free tickets as the event nears.
