Blue Sky Riders at SXSW 2013
Posted on April 12, 2013
Blue Sky Riders are excited to join the famed SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX this March with seven spectacular events scheduled. On March, 13, 2013 at 12:30 PM the band will be speaking at the SXSW “Indie At Any Age” Panel along with the band's 3Dream Record Label team.
The panel will focus on what happens when a multi-platinum, Grammy winning artist with a 4-decade career and two highly successful Nashville songwriters decide to form a band and put out their record independently. Attendees will learn from Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman and Gary Burr about how they formed Blue Sky Riders and built their own label, secured distribution and released and marketed their debut album, Finally Home, without major label support.
Later on March 13th, Blue Sky Riders will perform an Official SXSW Showcase at St. David's Historic Sanctuary at 9PM. On March 14th at 3PM, Blue Sky Riders will treat fans to an intimate acoustic set on The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus (which will be parked at Aussie's Grill & Beach Bar). March 15th there will be two performances with the first at 3:30PM for the Whole Foods/Amazon/Quantum Collective Series on the Rooftop Plaza at Whole Foods. The second performance will be at 11:15 PM for the SXSW Grammy Museum Beatles Tribute at St. David's Historic Sanctuary.
Blue Sky Riders will next perform on Saturday, March 16th at 3PM on the main stage of Rachael Ray Feedback at Stubb's and will finish their SXSW run at Rebels Honky Tonk that evening.
