Making a Scene Presents “Interview with a Pro”
Harty Wiedemann – Booking Agent – Blues Pro Talent
Blues Pros Talent was founded in 1996 and has grown steadily ever since Harty Wiedemann began working as a guitar player with the legendary Charles Atkins. Atkins noticed Harty’s knack for getting gigs and asked him to handle business affairs for the band. Word got out and other regional bands began to seek him out to represent them and to provide contracts for professional venues. The agency was founded out of a love of blues and roots music and has never strayed from that focus.
Blues Pros Talent strives to make the booking experience simple and stress free by treating Blues Societies, talent buyers, and festival promoters openly and honestly so all parties involved in the performance have a positive experience. Their dedicated staff maintains a level of trustworthiness and high business ethic that has helped Blues Pros Talent gain respect of artists and buyers world-wide and has set the standards for service and detail for other agencies to follow.
Today, their artist roster continues to grow with BMA, Grammy nominees and winners including Victor Wainwright & the Wildroots, JP Soars, Southern Hospitality, Packrat’s Smokehouse, Backtrack Blues Band, Ben Prestage, Gracie Curren, Jonn Del Toro Richardson, Dawn Tyler Watson and Sugar Ray & The Bluetones.
