It’s a Beautiful Day
Outer Reaches is pleased to announce the first of two events for 2018. Outer Reaches Explores the World 2018 is a new format with an emphasis on artists inspired by rhythms and traditional instruments of the world, who have incorporated this sound in creative ways to construct new boundary-pushing music. This isn’t a “world music” event per se and will still feature the familiar format of left-of-center music, it just has more of a worldly feel to it. This special event has been made possible through a grant from the Kansas City Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund and will function as a benefit for Midwest Music Foundation. Special promotions courtesy of KKFI 90.1 FM. We will still have our regular two-day main event of Outer Reaches in the fall. Stay tuned for more news on that announcement.
