Music in the Market
Musicians and dancers enhance the Eastern Ingham Farmers Market experience by donating their time to entertain market goers. The acts will change from week to week and can be a solo act or a group.
While the performers love to share their talents, they do appreciate tips to offset their travel expenses. Support from visitors to the Market not only shows appreciation for their talents and donated time, but can encourage our current performers to return in subsequent years and new performers to consider including our market in their summer/fall schedule.
Performer Application Information
The Eastern Ingham Farmers Market is looking for artists to donate their talents and time to perform in our market this summer.
WHY? To do what music does best, to build a sense of community, sharing, and a feel good vibe. What better combo can you find? You’ll be with kindred spirits who appreciate both good food and good music!
WHEN? Sundays beginning May 19 through October 13 for 1 to 2 hour time slots during the window from the 10:00 a.m. start of each market day to its close at 2:00 p.m.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR – Solo performers or small groups (instrumental, vocal or a combination) to engage and entertain shoppers in the Market. We are open to diverse music genre, e.g., blues, jazz, pop, bluegrass, folk, country, etc., as long as the style works in an open air market and you and our family customers are having fun.
OUR COMMITMENT – We will provide a prime, central location in the Market, Market tokens for use in purchasing Market products, promotion in the Eastern Ingham Farmers Market Newsletter and Facebook plus any other publicity or news story undertaken by the Market. You keep all tips (and proceeds from any product).
If you are interested in volunteering to perform at the market, please contact Market Manager Tom Cary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
