Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are not taking artist submissions for our event series at this time
Want to take part?
We are seeking a total of 32 Canadian musicians to partake in our Blue Jay pop-up over the course of four nights.
Each seating will require 4 musicians to sit in a songwriters’ circle for the duration of 1 hour, with each musician taking turns performing original songs (only) while telling the story behind them. Each musician will be required to perform at least 4 songs in the round.
Important things to note
Ideal musicians for BJC will have the ability to play either piano (i.e. keyboard) or acoustic guitar while singing and must be comfortable conversing publicly with other musicians while on the microphone as well as the audience.
Artists must disclose if they CANNOT play an instrument when applying to perform as the songwriters circles have limited space and we can only accommodate an accompanist for 2 performers per circle.
Artists must have an active Spotify account.
Preference will be placed on Canadian country duos or artists who have released singles recently in the past and/or are currently promoting singles or albums that have been released in the past three months.
Artist/duos will be receive compensation for participating in one songwriters’ circle session. Compensation is scaled and based on a variety of factors including a performer's proven draw in the Calgary area, Spotify activity, social media presence.
(note: information on how to invoice Eat North will be provided to selected musicians once schedule is finalized)
Interested musicians may also request a specific date/time (session times are noted at the top of this page and also in the form below) and we will try our best to accommodate. A wider availability will make it more likely for a performer to participate in our series.
Out-of-town talent may also apply, but we are not able to cover the cost of transportation or accommodation.
