Podunk helps music fans become music makers by providing a full educational program for attendees of all ages.
Podunk Promotional Video - There's so much to do at Podunk. This short video includes a glimpse of our 'Kids Academy' and Workshop Stage sessions.
The festival brings local, regional and national bluegrass acts into Norwich CT. During the festival we provide free workshops and small group lessons to those attending the festival. Our kids academy, adult academy and workshops give attendees a chance to play and learn from the artists that they will see on the main stage during the weekend.
Podunk is a family friendly festival. With our move to Norwich, we have found a need to look for help in funding these important parts of the festival. I hope you will join me in funding this project.
The guitar is one from our Bluegrass In The Schools program, a Jasmine by Takamine. A picture of the signed guitar and the signed festival poster is available by request.
The Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival T-Shirts are designed by our friend Russ from T-Shirt City. Each year, he sets up shop at the festival making all our volunteer shirts and other articles that are available to attendees.
This year we need to cover the cost of the instructors and facilities that will be used by the academy and workshops. This includes purchasing some new large tents to house the Kids and Adult Academy, the Song Writers Workshop and Workshop stage. Our instructors don't ask for a lot, and we try to provide them with a comfortable site to work with their students.
Once we have the sponsors to cover the 3 large tents and associated equipment we will ask the sponsor to provide:
1. A company banner or individual information to be displayed at the site.
2, A business card or information for the festival program ad.
3. List of names that will be authorized to use the admission tickets that are provided at this level.
These locations get a lot of traffic, either walking up to try things out at the Musical Petting Zoo, to people walking by and checking out what is going on in the Kids or Adult Academy.
