Music - CD Review or Artist Profile
If you are a musician, writer or artist, represent a major or independent company producing or promoting bluegrass music or events, or for any other reason believe you have something we should be reviewing, please feel free to e-mail us or send us review materials at: Bluegrass Works LLC, 31 Oakdale Avenue, Weston, MA 02493. Please include appropriate press information, photo or image (if applicable) and contact information, so that we may reach you should we have questions or problems. If you are interested in a sponsored or co-sponsored promotion, please e-mail us OR write to us at Bluegrass Works LLC, 31 Oakdale Avenue, Weston, MA 02493.
All material sent to us for review becomes the property of Bluegrass Works LLC and will not be returned.
Music should be submitted in CD format. Wherever possible, we prefer to receive two (2) copies: one for a staff reviewer or contributor and one for Bluegrass Works LLC to create digital music samples. Please do not submit cassette tapes or other media as these will be ignored. If you are submitting music to us on a pre-release basis, please indicate clearly whether or not there are date restrictions on review publication. DVDs and books may also be submitted for review.
Written material should be submitted on paper along with, wherever possible, a digital copy as well. Digital copy (preferably in Word format or similar word processing text) may be submitted on disc or by e-mail. Photographs or other images should be submitted in .jpg or .gif format, and may be submitted on diskette or by e-mail.
You may add upcoming events (festivals, concerts, jam sessions, etc.) directly to the database yourself, free of cost. The process is simple, with easy to follow instructions. You are encouraged to return and edit or delete information if applicable.

We reserve the right to review or not review, for any reason, any material submitted to us. While we will do our best to review all relevant, quality material we receive, we do not guarantee that we will review everything which we receive. No guarantee can be given as to the publication date of a particular review. Note, in particular, that we will NOT REVIEW any material that is primarily promotional or contains advertising or material that is derogatory, offensive or overtly controversial. We are not required to inform you of the reason(s) any submission were not reviewed. We will not review EPs. We reserve the right to publish basic information regarding a submission without review.
We generally attempt to have CDs, DVDs and books assigned to reviewers whose musical interest and/or expertise is appropriate to the material being reviewed. However, this is not always possible nor is it guaranteed. Most published reviews are handled in a timely manner and are determined by reader interest, release date and or other criteria deemed appropriate by us.
Each review published is the individual opinion of the reviewer and does not necessarily represent the opinions of Bluegrass Works LLC or Bluegrassworks.com, or their respective affiliates. Reviewers are independent authors and the methodology of individual reviewers can and will vary. Remember, a review is an opinion, and every review is nothing more than the opinion of its author. We encourage musicians, writers and artists to share their work with us. However, please bear in mind that we do NOT guarantee favorable reviews. We always prefer to give positive feedback, but we also ask our writers to be honest. Please do not ask us to change or delete a review simply because you don't agree with it.

WE DO NOT SELL MUSIC ON THIS SITE. IN THE CASE OF MUSIC, IT IS OUR POLICY TO PROVIDE USERS WITH FREE SAMPLES TO PORTIONS OF SONGS, IN FULL COMPLIANCE WITH COPYRIGHT LAWS.
