Dailey & Vincent, NewFound Road with new representation

Columbia Artists ManagementTwo bluegrass acts announced new affiliations yesterday.

Dailey & Vincent will now be represented by Columbia Artists Management and NewFound Road has signed with The Roots Agency. Both of these companies are large outfits who manage and book acts in a wide spectrum of styles.

Columbia Artists (CAMI) has historically focused on classical artists, conductors and ballet companies. They started in 1930 as an offshoot of CBS and have grown into the world’s largest agency in the classical and dance worlds. They have more recently expanded their roster to include world music, bluegrass and jazz artists, with Cherryholmes being the first grassers to sign.

The Roots AgencyThe Roots Agency represents artists in folk and folk-derived genres popular in The US – folk, bluegrass, Cajun, Celtic, jazz and Latin to name a few. Folk giants like Arlo Guthrie, The Chieftains and Richie Havens are represented here, as are Claire Lynch and Frank Vignola.

Both Dailey & Vincent and NewFound Road are hoping to be able to bring their music to new and larger audiences with these moves.
