We are trying to raise money for a tour called The Traveling Troubadours "More Than A Show" that will head to Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia in October. To do "More Than A Show " we step out of the normal touring box and play homeless shelters, nursing homes , outreaches etc.. to the least of these as well as the traditional venues, churches, home concerts etc.. playing mostly for love offerings. We also stay in these towns for several days to build relationships and friendships instead of just seeking fans and allow the artists to slow down enough to have meaningful conversations. The funds raised will go to downpayment of a vehicle to used on this and future tours, trailer purchase, fuel expenses and some meals. We seek host homes to stay in to develop friendships and help out expenses. We want the artists on the tours to not incur debt as they play and serve as they are called to do. The artists on the October leg are singer/songwriter Joy Whitlock www.myspace.com/joywhitlock , husband and wife folk duo Carolina Story, www.carolinastory.com and singer-songwriter Lara Landon www.laralandon.com . The November leg will include singer/songwriter Amy Courts www.amycourts.com , singer/songwriter Katy Kinard www.myspace.com/katykinard and Carolina Story, Sponsored by Anchor Artists Agency.
