Next Pollstar Live! Digital Session To Feature Fleming Artists’ Jim Fleming And Lara Supan
– Pollstar Live!
Jim Fleming and Lara Supan
Pollstar’s digital livestream sessions with notable concert industry figures continues Tuesday at 10 a.m. PT, featuring Fleming Artists President Jim Fleming and agent Lara Supan.
They will describe how the boutique booking agency has adapted to the current coronavirus situation, including with a virtual roster of artists, putting on its own Fleming Festival digital event, holding weekly Zoom meetings with artists and managers, and how it can make livestreamed virtual concerts a reality economics-wise as well.
Fleming has run his own agency for more than 40 years, with a varied roster that now includes singer-songwriter and Award-winning actor Jeff Daniels to Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner Tom Paxton, acclaimed songwriter Erin McKeown and burgeoning talent such as The Accidentals and Carsie Blanton, among others.
Tuesday’s stream can be viewed live from Pollstar’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pollstar. Viewers are encouraged to ask questions.
Previous Pollstar Live! digital sessions have included AGI founder Dennis Arfa, promoter and venue owner Peter Shapiro, First Avenue’s Dayna Frank and Nederlander Concerts CEO Alex Hodges.
Later this week, Drive-By Truckers co-founder Patterson Hood will take part in a One-On-One session with OVG’s Ray Waddell. Tune in on Thursday at 1 p.m. PT.
