National Presenters Conference Comes to Halifax

The 27th Annual CAPACOA Conference Takes Place in Halifax, NS From January 21-24

The 27th Annual CAPACOA Conference takes place in Halifax, NS from January 21 to 24, 2015 at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel. Celebrating The Culture of Convergence, the event features keynote speaker Richard Evans and an intimate 'Artist Voice' interview with Natalie MacMaster. This is the first time the conference will take place in Halifax and just the second time it will have been on the East Coast in the association’s history.

Richard Evans is the President of EmcArts, where he directs program design, research, and strategic partnerships that place a particular emphasis on innovation, adaptive organization change, and effective ways that the arts and culture field can respond to the demands of a new era.

Award winning Cape Breton musician, Natalie MacMaster, began her fiddling career at 16 when she released her debut album, Four on the Floor. Her musical venture now spans over three decades, completing 11 albums, performing thousands of shows and collaborating with a multitude of world renowned artists. 

A four-day gathering of Canada’s national presenting and touring sector, the CAPACOA conference is an opportunity for industry professionals to reconnect with colleagues and make new connections from coast to coast to coast. With more than 250 International and Canadian presenters, agents, managers, artists and other performing arts professionals in attendance, participants can expect new networking opportunities, informative sessions and peer meetings as well as nightly theatre, music and dance performances and showcases throughout the city.

Registration is now available. This includes registration for The CAPACOA Exhibit Hall, an area where exhibitors can rent tables to promote their services. It's open several times throughout the conference and also includes areas for networking and meetings. Click HERE for more information. 

Interested participants are invited to submit an application to pitch during the 2015 CAPACOA Conference. Pitches are open to agents, producing/ touring organizations, and artists who wish to promote tour-ready work that is new/innovative and that is not part of a regular roster or work that has toured extensively before. Click HERE for more information. 

Sponsorship opportunities are currently available offering premier visibility while supporting innovation and excellence in the presenting and touring sector. For more information, contact Judy Harquail (jlharquail@gmail.com | 416-949-7312) or Amy Theriault (amytheriault@yahoo.com).

2014 Music Nova Scotia Awards Nominees Announced: Kim Harris and Adam Baldwin Both Receive Six Nominations, Blue Rodeo to Perform at NSMW 2014

 

(September 2, 2014, Halifax, NS) Symphonic songstress Kim Harris and roots-rocker Adam Baldwin lead the pack at this year’s Music Nova Scotia Awards with six nominations each, followed by Carleton Stone and The Town Heroes who have five nods each. The awards will be handed out during the 2014 Molson Canadian Nova Scotia Music Week (NSMW), held in Truro Colchester from November 6-9.

Other artists receiving multiple nominations include Don Brownrigg, Jimmy Rankin and Kuato, who each have four. 

Voting for the awards is open to members of Music Nova Scotia. Voting is now open and will close on Tuesday, September 23 at 5:00 PM. The general public will have a chance to vote for the Music Nova Scotia Entertainer of the Year award. Online voting for this award will open in October. The Music Nova Scotia Awards will be handed out Sunday, November 9th at the Music and Industry Awards Brunch to be held at the Holiday Inn Truro.

This year marks a shift in programming at NSMW, as there will be no awards gala. In its place will be an arena show headlined by Canadian country-rock legends Blue Rodeo, with support from Adam Baldwin and Carleton Stone. The show will be held on Sunday, November 9 in Truro’s Rath Eastlink Community Centre. 

Music Nova Scotia Executive Director Scott Long believes this change will be a significant improvement from past festivals.

“We’ve decided to move away from an awards gala this year in favour of a ‘Super Show’ with an internationally recognized act such as Blue Rodeo,” says Long. “We want to make this a more performance-centred event to create a wider appeal for festival goers. Blue Rodeo is a perfect fit for NSMW as our mandate is to showcase and celebrate the music and musicians of Nova Scotia. Band member Greg Keelor is a native Cape Bretoner who has achieved great success in the music industry. The show will be a great celebration to cap off what’s sure to be an amazing NSMW.”

The festival will feature 100 showcasing artists from throughout the province, playing in eight venues in Truro Colchester. Coinciding with the showcases will be the NSMW industry conference, which brings in music professionals from around the world to participate in panels, presentations and workshops that deal with a wide range of topics surrounding the current and future state of the industry.

MNS office closed Tuesday, September 2nd

Please be advised that we will be closed on Tuesday, September 2nd as we announce the showcasing artists and award nominees for Molson Canadian Nova Scotia Music Week at the Marigold Theatre in Truro. We will reopen Wednesday, September 3rd. Have a great Labour Day weekend!

"Why We Fired Fender"

from The Retailer:

Independence is what started rock ‘n’ roll: independence from our parents, from Big Brother and from the status quo. The nature of independence is self-sufficiency, individual choice and setting our own course.

The spirit of independent rock ‘n’ roll, though, has now been co-opted by some of the same Wall Street bankers who brought you the dot com bubble and the housing crisis.

We are witnessing a consolidation in our industry similar to what has happened in media, banking and telecommunications. Private-equity firms have been buying up both retail stores and wholesale manufacturers, mostly using leveraged debt backed by junk bonds for the purchases. By owning both wholesale and retail, they are selling themselves product, and then selling it to consumers.
