Local acts wanted for ‘Stars at the Ridgetop’ concert

Music agent, producer and promoter Dane Petersen would like to add up to 10 local acoustic acts to the “Stars at the Ridgetop” concert on Aug. 21 benefiting the Nevada County Land Trust.

Leo Kottke and Tuck & Patti will headline the second annual concert, to be held at a 40-acre private property a few miles from downtown Nevada City.

“I was only going to present the two headliners, but I just can’t pass on the chance to give at least a few local performing artists the opportunity to be seen and heard by this wonderful community,” Petersen said. “If you are a talented performing artist, regardless of age, background or any other criteria, we want to know about you and your talent. Singers, musicians, mimes, jugglers, dancers, comedians, actors, troupes, circus folks, and anyone else is welcome ….”

Interested entertainers can send a videotape to Petersen at 578 Sutton Way, Number 333, Grass Valley, CA 95945.

Call him at 271-2007 or e-mail dane@publishing quest.com for more information.
