Holiday Arts Tour: Call for Musicians

NCLAC is now accepting applications from musicians, bands, and singer-songwriters to participate in our 13th annual Holiday Arts Tour. This is "The Year of the Song," and we are hosting a Singer-Songwriter's Workshop and open-mic concert in conjunction with the tour this year. In hiring musicians to play the Tour, we want to serve those in our region first, so we’re inviting interested parties in Lincoln, Jackson, Claiborne, Bienville, and Union parishes to apply from August 13-27. On August 28, a committee of NCLAC Board Members and Tour sponsors will meet to listen and consider applications, so late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. If you are interested and unable to submit a digital music sample, please call to inquire about auditioning live. To download a Musician Application Packet, scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for our Shared Files. If you need any assistance with your application or if you have questions, please contact us.

If you have participated before, you will notice some additional requirements in the application packet. For example, we are including a Supplemental Musician Info form that we will use in creating publicity materials. As we choose artists, musicians, and businesses to participate this year, we will also post “feature” articles about them on the blog in the weeks leading up to the Tour.

We are making some exciting changes this year, so even if you have attended or participated in the Tour in the past, we encourage you to check out what’s new this year. For more details and regular updates, please subscribe to our blog.

More information about the Singer-Songwriter's Workshop and how businesses and sponsors can participate will be coming soon! We've received one report of problems accessing the Shared Files. If you encounter a problem, please email us at
