Popular online show to travel the world interviewing musicians
Jason Crane firstname.lastname@example.org
BROOKLYN, NY: Starting June 1, 2012, Jason Crane
, host of the popular online interview show The Jazz Session
, is beginning a world tour, documenting the lives of jazz musicians around North America and elsewhere. He'll also be performing his poetry during the tour.
The tour begins on the East Coast of the United States, with stops in places including Philadelphia; Delaware; Washington, D.C.; Richmond (VA); Charlottesville (VA); Asheville (NC); and eventually New Orleans.RAISING MONEY
The Jazz Session is supported by its members. It's those recurring donations that will fuel the bulk of the tour. Crane is also running a brief campaign to raise the money to buy two Greyhound bus passes to cover the first four months of travel. His goal is to raise $1,100 by May 31, 2012. Donors can choose to give $10, $20, $50, $100, $250, $500 or $1,000. There are thank-you gifts at every level, from tour postcards to CDs to books and more. MORE WAYS TO HELP
Besides donating money, Crane is looking for additional help:
Suggest a place to go or a musician to interview.
Host Crane on the tour.
Host a house party (any size) so Crane can read his poetry and maybe sell a book or two.
Suggest a venue (bookstore, performance space) in your town where Crane could do a poetry reading.
Initially, Crane will be traveling on the East Coast, but he's open to housing, interview and performance suggestions from anywhere in the world.
