Last Minute Folk is always interested in hearing from new artists who would like to be considered for a booking . We look for artists in the acoustic, folk, American, and roots genres and give preference to those with significant performing experience and who have released CDs nationally. We are a BMI and ASCAP licensed series and strongly encourage our artists to submit their playlists to their own PRO to obtain fair reimbursement for use of their music.
Our venue beginning with our November 12, 2016 show will be the gallery space of the historic Jayhawk State Theatre in downtown Topeka. The stage area will accommodate two (possibly three or four) musicians but generally we can’t manage larger groups. We book one concert per month, with the exception of July. Our usual guarantee for shows is $300 plus 50% of the gate over $500, though this may be negotiable. In some situations, we may be able to provide additional performing opportunities, such as providing music for the UUFT Sunday service, doing lessons or classes through Manning Music in Topeka, and doing performances for local nursing facilities, libraries, or schools.
Currently the Last Minute Folk schedule is booked through the 2017 but we are happy to take your information and keep you on our list. Deb Kirmer and Kathy Hartley are the booking agents for the series and you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or send us messages through the LMF Facebook page. We hope to hear from you soon!
