Join the Blue Skies campfire jams and Open Stage

We’re asking all interested musicians to contribute a song or a tune for Virtual campfires and Open Stage performances last day for uploading to YouTube is July 29th. 

Two fabulous volunteers have offered to host: Linda Grenier is looking after Open Stage and Michael Griffin is looking after Campfire Jams. We’re asking all interested musicians to contribute a song or a tune (or two or three).

What’s the difference between a Campfire song and an Open Stage song? Think about whether you’d play this around the campfire for people to jam with you or if this is an original song or performance you want to highlight on the Open Stage.

How to Make a Good Video

Here’s How to Contribute a Video:

Upload your video to YouTube. Use the #hashtags #Blueskies2021Campfire or #Blueskies2021OpenStage when you upload your video. Linda and Michael will use these #hashtags when searching for videos to put on the Campfire and Open Stage playlists. They will curate videos to make sure the content is pure Blue Skies material (nothing hinky you wouldn’t want your kids to see).
