Kiwifolk Fundraiser - New Zealand folk music online.
- $600.00 donated
- 13 generous donors
Kiwifolk is looking for donations to support its various services in support of New Zealand folk and acoustic music and dance.
Since the very first days of the world wide web, Mike Moroney has maintained an online presence for New Zealand folk music information: clubs, festivals, artists, recordings and more. What started out as a hobby has now become an indispensable portal for overseas artists planning tours through New Zealand, discussion groups, NZ folk events promotion and music streaming. The main Kiwifolk services are:
- The original website: www.kiwifolk.org.nz: giving up-to-date listings of NZ folk clubs, societies, festivals, artists, sessions and tunes.
- Kiwifolk Radio, www.kiwifolk.com, all NZ folk music and programmes streaming 24/7
- The nz-folk list, a legacy email listserver running since 1992 serving up to 400 subscribers.
- Kiwifolk Page on Facebook
Use of Funds:
Any money raised is used to offset costs of hosting and streaming, as well as the appropriate APRA licence. Currently around $1800 per annum.
Page created by:
Mike has been a key person in the New Zealand folk music scene for over 30 years, both as a musician and a club and festival organiser. Mike established the Kiwifolk website in the very early days of the World Wide Web, and has maintained it as the go-to resource for local and international acts wishing to tour New Zealand or any other interested person wishing to explore the NZ folk scene.
In addition Mike has run an old-fashioned email list-server (firstname.lastname@example.org) since 1993, which has become a much loved resource for the NZ folk community the world over.
Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Mike Moroney.
