Southern Belle Booking has announced the addition of Laura Tate Ridge to the company in the position of Senior Agent.
Laura has been in and around bluegrass most of her life. She is the daughter of popular North Carolina fiddler Johnny Ridge, and has been attending festivals and concerts with him since she was a wee lass. As an adult, Laura has worked previously as an agent with Deep River Management, and as a bluegrass photographer.
Leslie Brown and Spring Gates, who jointly own and manage Southern Belle, look forward to working closely with Laura.
“We are so unbelievably excited to have Laura join our team! Her experience and background in the bluegrass industry will definitely be a huge asset to Southern Belle Booking and our roster. We are blessed beyond words to have her!”
With Leslie and Spring, Laura will help manage dates for Nathan Stanley, Bobby Osborne, Carolina Blue, and We Are One. More information about the agency and their artists can be found online.
