kickstart an Irish music recording
Shannon most often performs in a duo with her husband Matt, and with the quartet Long Time Courting. She also has a plan to record a solo flute album. Part of the way she’s financing this is through a Kickstarter project.
Kickstarter is an online method which allows artists of all sorts to raise funds for creative projects, with the stipulation that if the pledge goal set by the artist is not reached within a a short time (in Shannon’s case the deadline is 19 July) then that’s it: the backers who've pledged are not charged anything. So it is a challenge of sorts.
update: The challenge was met, and recording is underway. Stay tuned here along the music road for news about the album. further up date: the CD is out! follow this link for more: Music Road: Shannon Heaton: The Blue Dress
