Submitting a PSA?

Non profit events and fundraiser can be submitted by email to angiefoster@bicoastal.media. We will not air events for free that are paying for advertising on any other media outlet (newspaper, radio, television, etc.) PSA’s are posted on this page, and given random live mentions on one or more of our 5 Albany radio stations. We cannot guarantee when or if your event will be mentioned, as it is subject to time availability and on-air host discretion. PSA’s should be submitted no less than 2 weeks prior to an event. Please do not send only a flier or simply a link to a page where we can “find” the information for your event. Submit a short paragraph describing the Who, What, When, Why, How much, and most importantly, what the profits will benefit

 

Performance of Ari and Mia–Lebanon Public Library–11-7

Tuesday November 7th at 7pm Lebanon Public Library is proud to welcome back Ari & Mia, New England’s Americana sister act.
Ari & Mia reference the styles of Southern and Northeastern fiddle music and the early American songbook to create a realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions. Their stylish and sophisticated music honors the sounds of Appalachian cottages, rural dance floors, and urban concert halls. Combine this with their innovative approach to songwriting and the result is a captivating sound.
Together, the sisters have toured all across the U.S and Australia and are both graduates of New England Conservatory’s cutting edge Contemporary Improvisation department. Both award winning songwriters, Mia’s song “Across the Water” won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category, and Ari’s song “Old Man” was a semi-finalist for the 2016 International Songwriting Competition. Their two previous albums, Land on Shore and Unruly Heart, ranked high on the national folk radio charts.
For more information about Ari and Mia visit www.ariandmiamusic.com. For more information about the event call the library at 541-258-4926, visit our website www.lebanonpubliclibrary.com, like us on facebook or follow us on Instagram @lebanon_library.
The performance is free to attend and does not require a membership.
