FAI 2016: Conversations at Folk Alliance

KC Cafe Radio's booth at the 2016 Folk Alliance International ConferenceThe 2016 Folk Alliance International Conference and Music Fair was held for the third year in a row in Kansas City, Missouri February 17-21.  KC Cafe Radio was there once again, providing live coverage of the conference from our booth at the exhibit hall.

This year turned out to be a significantly rewarding year for us.  Not only did we have the opportunity to catch up with several old friends, we made several new ones as well.  Stay tuned to KC Cafe Radio, over the next several weeks and months you will begin hearing new music and voices, a direct result of these new friendships.

Louis MeyersSince the conference, we were saddened to learn of the passing of a very good friend to KC Cafe Radio and Folk Alliance International, Louis Meyers.  Louis had served as Executive Director of Folk Alliance International for several years, and had co-founded the South By Southwest (SXSW) festival.  Louis died on Friday, March 11, the first day of the 2016 SXSW festival.

Louis is also responsible for connecting us at KC Cafe radio with Folk Alliance International.  He had personally invited us to one of the regional conferences.  The following year we returned to the Folk Alliance Region Midwest conference with our live microphones.  Since then, we have attended and covered two regional and two international conferences.  Our involvement with this outstanding organization may not have happened without his invitation.

Here are archived recordings of the conversations we had during the conference:

KC Cafe House Concert: Beth Wood

The latest in our series of House Concerts was held June 1 featuring singer/songwriter Beth Wood.

A West Texas native now living in the Pacific Northwest, Beth has been performing her unique “troubadour-style” modern folk music, featuring acoustic guitar, and occasionally, when available on her tours, piano.  Her website describes her performances as “soulful, organic, intelligent, barefoot, high-energy communication of joy.”

Beth’s latest album is titled “The Weather Inside,” which she describes as “a case study in contrast… embracing strength and tenderness, the polished and the well-worn, the broken and the hopeful heart.”

Beth Wood performed music from her new album and more, during this intimate gathering of friends in Olathe, Kansas (that’s oh-LAY-the!)
