KZUM (89.3 FM) hosts a marquee lineup of Nebraska songwriters in performance at its inaugural Great Winter Ramble on Jan. 13 at the Pla Mor Ballroom, 6600 W. O St. All proceeds will benefit KZUM’s Nebraska artists showcase at the Folk Alliance International (FAI) Conference in Kansas City, Feb. 14-18, 2018.
The nonprofit FAI Conference bills itself as “the world’s largest gathering of the folk music industry and community.” For the first time, KZUM has organized a contingent of staff, volunteers and performers to attend the conference.
At The Great Winter Ramble benefit, the Pla Mor’s doors will open at 6 p.m. Performers will include: Mike Semrad and the River Hawks, Matt Cox, Evan Bartels, Andrea von Kampen, Will Hutchinson and Jack Hotel. All of the performers are donating their time for the event.
