The Mark Newton Band Signs With Andrea Roberts Agency

FRANKLIN, TN – The Mark Newton Band is proud to announce their new booking representation with The Andrea Roberts Agency (ARA). The Andrea Roberts Agency was established in 2004 and is home to reigning IBMA Entertainers of the Year The Grascals, Special Consensus, NewFound Road and Sally Jones & The Sidewinders. Owner Andrea Roberts is excited to be working with Mark. “I have been a fan of Mark Newton’s music since the early eighties and more importantly, a friend for many years," she says. "I am so pleased to have the opportunity to represent Mark and his talented band and I look forward to many more years of friendship and music that gets better with time.”

The excitement for this new partnership is mutual. "I'm really looking forward to working with ARA," Newton says. "I've known Andrea for a long time and her love and passion for the music goes without saying. You combine that with her drive to create a stellar agency and she represents the very best of what this music and business is all about. I'm really looking forward to combining our efforts and am honored to be on board with ARA!"

Newton, one of today's most respected interpreters of bluegrass music, will be a featured artist on the World of Bluegrass Fan Fest stage on Friday afternoon, Oct. 5th and will feature music from his longtime career and his latest album, Hillbilly Hemingway, recognized by many as the best album of his career. Bluegrass Radio Network and WSM Radio's Terry Herd calls Hillbilly Hemingway "a stellar project!"

Hillbilly Hemingway is also nominated for Best Graphic Design for Recorded Project. The award winner will be announced on Wed. Oct. 3rd during the showcase luncheon, a part of the IBMA World of Bluegrass Week Business Conference.

Mark will be busy throughout the week in Nashville with schedule performances, booth visits and media interviews including Great American Country TV (GACTV).
