KZUM (89.3) is pleased to announce a marquee lineup of Nebraska songwriters in performance at its inaugural Great Winter Ramble on Jan. 13, 2018 with doors opening at 6 p.m. at Pla Mor Ballroom, 6600 West O St.

All proceeds from The Great Winter Ramble will benefit KZUM's Nebraska artists showcase at the Folk Alliance International (FAI) Conference in Kansas City, Feb. 14-18, 2018.

Performers at the benefit include: Mike Semrad and the River Hawks, Matt Cox, Evan Bartels, Andrea von Kampen, Will Hutchinson and Jack Hotel. The evening will also serve as the record release for Semrad's debut solo album Cloud or Mountain. All of the performers are donating their time for the event.

Food by Lippy's BBQ will be available all night, with all proceeds from sales donated to KZUM. There will be a silent auction.

The FAI Conference bills itself as "the world's largest gathering of the folk music industry and community." In 2017 the conference featured attendees from 27 countries including professionals in radio, music journalism, booking, label management and artist representation.

For the first time, KZUM has organized a contingent of staff, volunteers and performers to attend the conference. The station will operate a booth at the convention space and, most importantly, one of the coveted private showcase rooms where a rotation of Nebraska artists will perform each night in front of potentially hundreds of industry professionals.
