ArtsCONNECT provides funding for mid-Atlantic-based presenters working collaboratively to engage a performing artist or ensemble. The program aims to develop and deepen relationships among the region’s presenters, helping build a more sustainable touring environment for artists and ensembles. The supported tours include performances as well as community engagement activities that enhance the performance experience, and offer meaningful exchanges between touring artists and a presenter’s community.

A competitive, peer-panel-reviewed program, ArtsCONNECT supports tours developed by consortia of at least three presenters from a minimum two different states and jurisdictions served by MAAF. Proposed artists/ensembles may be from anywhere worldwide, but may not be based in the home state or jurisdiction of any of the applicant presenters.

Matching grants are awarded once per year ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 per presenter for non-commissioning projects. Presenters with commissioning projects may request up to $15,000.

Questions regarding ArtsCONNECT should be directed to Haowen Wang, Program Officer, Performing Arts, at haowen@midatlanticarts.org.

ArtsCONNECT is made possible through support from the National Endowment for the Arts’ Regional Touring Program.

Established by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (MAAF) in 2018, Folk and Traditional Arts Network (FTAN) is a presenter based membership network designed to bolster the presentation of folk and traditional arts in the mid-Atlantic region.

Through its members, FTAN aims to provide audiences and communities with direct access to folk and traditional arts and artists, increasing their community’s appreciation and understanding of cultural practice and identity. FTAN engages artists and tradition bearers that represent the breadth and diversity of folk and traditional arts across the United States and beyond, exhibit artistic excellence in their practice and demonstrate the desire to develop and expand their public presentation expertise.

MAAF has partnered with the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA) to assist with tour coordination and facilitate collaborative planning between FTAN members and touring artists and tradition bearers.

A list of current FTAN members is available below.

Questions regarding the Folk and Traditional Arts Touring Network should be directed to Jess Porter at jess@midatlanticarts.org.

The Folk and Traditional Arts Touring Network is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Aurelio Martinez (Plaplaya, Honduras and New York, NY)

Aurelio Martinez stands in a door way by a brightly painted turquiose wall holding his guitar.  He wears a white shirt and his hair is in braids.

One of the most extraordinary Central American artists of his generation, Aurelio Martinez is a musical ambassador and champion of the Garifuna, a culturally threatened African Amerindian ethnic minority living primarily along the Caribbean coasts of Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Hailing from the small community of Plaplaya in Honduras, he grew up immersed in Garifuna rhythms, rituals, and songs. With powerfully evocative vocals; talent as a composer, guitarist, and percussionist; and over 30 years’ experience, Aurelio is central to the perpetuation and innovation of this unique tradition. Aurelio now splits his time between New York City, home to one of the largest Garifuna communities in the United States, and Plaplaya in Honduras.

Garifuna culture reflects the complex roots of Aurelio’s ancestors, Africans who landed on the island of St. Vincent in 1675 after the wreck of a slave ship and intermarried with local Carib and Arawak peoples, only to be deported to Central America by the British in the late 18thcentury. In 2001 UNESCO proclaimed the language, dance, and music of the Garifuna as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The style of Garifuna music that Aurelio plays incorporates the guitar—adopted from the Spanish—and is called paranda. In 2005, Aurelio entered politics, becoming the first senator of African descent in the Honduran congress. While he left politics in 2010, he remains deeply involved with projects teaching Garifuna traditions to the next generation.

Native Voices : Katajjaq to Hip Hop | featuring Supaman (Crow Reservation, Montana) and Nukariik (Ottawa, Ontario)

This is a split image photo.  On the left, two women in white fancy dress face each other with their heads turned toward the camera.  They are outside against foilage.  On the right, a male dancer in fancy dress is turned to left profile and faces the camera.

From practitioners of the rarely heard Inuit women’s vocal tradition of katajjaq (throat-singing) and to a Fancy Dancer/hip hop artist/beatboxer from the Crow Nation, this program explores indigenous artistic expressions, both centuries-old and contemporary, in North America.

The Crow Indian Reservation, located in the Yellowstone River Valley in Montana, appears at first glance to be as far removed from the city streets of the Bronx as possible. For Christian Takes Gun Parrish, who performs under the name of Supaman, although the two geographic locales might be separated by thousands of miles, they are connected by similar problems that plague them. Supaman combines the best of New York’s hip hop beats with his own Native American traditional arts to speak to these very issues. The figure he creates in this cultural synthesis—a genre he has termed Crow Hop—demands an audience’s rapt attention when they first see his enigmatic, rhythmic, and visually arresting collage of traditional arts. He is, simultaneously, a Fancy Dancer, a hip hop artist, a beatboxer, and a voice for the Crow Nation.

Kathy Kettler and Tamara Takpannie are Nukariik, a duo that carries on the rarely heard Inuit throat-singing tradition and other age-old forms of Inuit entertainment such as drum dancing and a ja ja songs. A vocal game used to amuse children and women while men were out hunting, Inuit throat singing is an art practiced almost exclusively by women. Two singers stand or crouch facing each other and engage in a bit of friendly competition as one singer takes the lead and the other follows. During the vocal exchange, the voiced sounds and breath of each singer combine to form rhythmic melodies that imitate sounds from nature such as a mosquito or a river. The result is mesmerizing, as the singers playfully compete to see who will stop or laugh first. Skilled singers such as Nukariik blend and synchronize their voices so perfectly that it becomes difficult to distinguish between them.

Akua Allrich Washington, D.C.

Jazz vocalist and DC-native Akua Allrich has proven herself to be a musician of extraordinary talent and crowd-moving passion.

Allison Miller’s Boom Tic Boom, New York, NY

One of the most exciting jazz drummers on the scene, performer, composer, and educator Allison Miller gathers inspiration from a wide array of genres. Described by critics as a charismatic and rhythmically propulsive drummer with melodic sensibility, Miller engages her deep roots in improvisation as a way to explore all music.

In Our Veins: Rivers and Social Change

Rivers are the lifeline of America, and in the 19th and 20th century, many social movements took place around waterways.  “In Our Veins: Rivers and Social Change” is a multimedia suite for chamber jazz ensemble and tap dancer centered around five American rivers (Susquehanna, Delaware, James, Hudson, Schuylkill) and the social and environmental changes they inspired.

Ghost Note, Dallas, TX

Headed by Snarky Puppy’s multi-grammy–winning percussion duo of Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth, Ghost-Note is an explosion of sound. With an expansive roster of next-level musicians—representing members of Prince, Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Marcus Miller, Toto, Justin Timberlake, and more—the band is pushing funk music into the future, building on the uplifting, pioneering foundations laid out by the likes of James Brown And Sly & The Family Stone and infusing their fresh take with tastes of Afrobeat, hip-hop, psychedelia, world folklore, and more.

With the release of 2018’s Swagism, Ghost-Note has made their mission clear. The album puts rhythm at the forefront, with irresistible, heavy-hitting beats underlying the group’s wild, rich music. Swagism showcases the band’s stunning ability to meld and amplify sounds, ultimately adding to ghost-note’s sharp, complex collaborations.

Fearless, both in Swagism’s sonic depth and conscious social commentary, the band easily translates this adventurousness in a live setting. Ghost-note’s live performances are bold and in your face, with the group offering up none of the tight-laced pretenses frequently associated with the band’s jazz roots. Focused on creating seductive danceable grooves and a contagious feel-good energy, each show is an opportunity to let loose and connect, for both fans and the musicians alike.

After forming in 2015, ghost-note has already begun to take the world by storm. The group’s two studio albums—2018’s Swagism and 2015’s Fortified—have earned critical acclaim and popular success around the globe, with both albums hitting the #1 spot on the iTunes jazz charts.

Makaya McCraven, Chicago, IL

Makaya McCraven is a beat scientist. The bleeding edge drummer, producer, and sonic collagist is one of Chicago’s savviest cultural players and a multi-talented force whose inventive process & intuitive, cinematic style defy categorization.

French-born but raised in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts by expatriate musician parents, McCraven studied Jazz at the University of Massachusetts Amherst under the mentorship of jazz luminaries Archie Shepp, Marion Brown, and Yusef Lateef, and eventually went on to develop his chops in Chicago’s burgeoning scene.

His breakthrough album In the Moment quickly launched McCraven into the vanguard of not only Internationally-known jazz artists, but also a niche genre of next-wave composer-producers blurring the boundaries of jazz & electronic music.

His recent releases, the DJ-style mixtape Highly Rare as well as an internationally recorded Where We Come From have been well received globally, leading to increased bookings in some of the world’s best clubs, theaters, and festivals. McCraven’s most recently released Universal Beings, a 2xLP album features an A-list of “new” jazz players from New York, Chicago, London & Los Angeles.

Stefon Harris + Blackout, NJ, NY

Stefon Harris’s passionate artistry and astonishing virtuosity have propelled him to the forefront of the jazz scene. Heralded as “one of the most important artists in jazz” (The Los Angeles Times), he has been named a recipient of the 2018 Doris Duke Artist Awards. One of the most prestigious programs in the arts, “the Doris Duke Artist Awards invest in exemplary individual artists in contemporary dance, jazz, theater and related interdisciplinary work who have demonstrated their artistic vitality and commitment to their field.” He is also a recipient of the prestigious Martin E. Segal Award from Lincoln Center, has earned four Grammy nominations, and has been named Best Mallet player eight times by the Jazz Journalists Association.  This tour supports Stefon Harris + Blackout’s new album, Sonic Creed, an album that chronicles the story of a people and their time on the planet. It is a reflection of African-American life in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Furthermore, it is a sonic manifestation and creed of family, community and legacy. The album explores afresh the music of masters such as Bobby Hutcherson, Abbey Lincoln, Wayne Shorter and Horace Silver.

Mid Atlantic Tours is a curated roster program of performing artists and ensembles chosen to tour throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Subsidy is provided directly to presenters engaging artists from the roster for performances. The roster of artists changes annually but maintains a programmatic commitment to a diversity of performance genres, international cultural exchange, and engaging communities underserved by the arts.

The annual artist roster is selected through a staff-curated process led by MAAF Program Officer, Performing Arts, with input from mid-Atlantic presenters through an annual survey. Criteria considered in the selection process include artists or ensembles that appeal to a wide-range of presenters within the mid-Atlantic region, reasonable artist affordability and technical requirements, and strong artist representation.

There is no application process for artists to be part of the Mid Atlantic Tours roster. Presenters interested in learning more about the booking and funding process should refer to the Now Booking and Booking Guidelines tabs under this program.

Iraqi and Afghan interpreters were key to the U.S. war effort, but now many face danger in their countries because of their work.  The Interpreters follows the lives of a chain-smoking Iraqi codenamed “Phillip Morris” who was able to make it to the U.S. with the help of an American soldier, an Afghan called Malik who is still working as an active interpreter at the U.S. base in Kabul despite threats to his life, and an Afghan named Mujtaba who fled with his family as refugees to Turkey, as they work to rebuild their lives.

Badger Creek and The Thick Dark Fog
Co-Directed and Produced by Jonathan Skurnik and Randy Vasquez
Touring Filmmaker Jonathan Skurnik

Badger Creek is the documentary portrait of a Blackfeet (Pikuni) family, the Mombergs, who live on the lower Blackfeet Reservation in Montana near the banks of Badger Creek. In addition to running a prosperous ranching business, they practice a traditional Blackfeet cultural lifestyle that sustains and nourishes them. The film takes us through a year in the life of the family, and through four seasons of the magnificent and traditional territory of the Pikuni Nation.

Walter Littlemoon was forced to attend a federal Indian boarding school in South Dakota sixty years ago, where any expression of native identity was met with beatings, humiliation, and abuse. After carrying this unresolved trauma into adulthood, Walter decided to write and publish his memoirs as a way to explain his past abusive behaviors to his estranged children. But dealing with the memories of his boarding school days nearly put an end to the project. The Thick Dark Fog tells the story of how Walter confronted his past so that he could heal himself and his community.
