Vote for PineCone!

If you've ever enjoyed an Appalachian and Bluegrass Music Festival at the Ulster American Folk Park at Omagh, Co. Tyrone, the chances are you have good reason to thank PineCone, the Piedmont Council of Traditional Music, which has made it possible for us to see, hear, and meet many fine musicians from North Carolina.

We now have a chance to help PineCone in return, and all it costs is a minute of our time, if that.  PineCone is among the NC non-profit organisations who are in the running to receive a 'technology makeover'. The two organisations with the highest number of votes will receive new office and network equipment worth a combined value of $35,000 from Milner, Inc.

PineCone does wonders with what it has, but it badly needs more - most of its budget goes straight to its programmes, paying artists, sound engineers, facilities, marketing, and related costs. Anyone, anywhere in the world, who approves of what PineCone is doing can help by voting for it - and this can be done once a day, every day from now up to and including Sunday 26 Jan. We can also help by spreading the word, and by Liking and sharing the voting site on Facebook, Twitter, and favourite social media sites.
