Thursday, June 7th, our very own Stephen Arnold will be doing “A Story of Six Strings” book signing event for a good cause! All book proceeds plus 10% of Two Old Hippies sales will support Little Kids Rock, a non-profit dedicated to restoring and revitalizing music education in U.S. public schools. For every book purchase, Little Kids Rock can serve about 3 children with a year’s worth of instrumental music lessons due to the support of Two Old Hippies.
Stephen will hold a workshop demonstrating ways to monetize your music beyond the stage and CD downloads by creating “sonic brands” for broadcast and cable networks. There will be performances by special guests Lee Roy Parnell, Dennis Matkosky, our very own Vault artist Greg Barnhill and Little Kids Rock Musicians.
If you are in the Nashville area stop by this free event, book signing, workshop and performance. Lite bites and libations will be served.
