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:

FAR-West 2015: Conversations at FAR-West

Folk Alliance Region WestThe saying “birds of a feather flock together” was proven true for us at KC Cafe Radio during the recent Folk Alliance Region-West (FAR-West) Music Conference in Oakland, California.  The miles between Kansas City and Oakland seemed to dissolve away, as we were made to feel right at home among old friends and new at this outstanding event.

As we wrap up our archived coverage of the conference, we extend a heartfelt thank-you to those who were influential in making our broadcast coverage possible: Thank you Far-West President Mark Kaufman and the Board of Directors who allowed us to visit Oakland and broadcast from the conference.  Thank you conference organizers Jeanette Lundgren (who extended the invitation for us to come out to Oakland) and John Roy Zat (who also loaned us his audio equipment to assist in getting a reliable signal back to our broadcast system in Kansas City).  Thank you Official Showcase organizers Peggy Glenn and Jime Van Booven, who graciously worked our broadcast coverage of the shows into their master plan.  To house sound engineer “smilin'” James Heyser and his technical crew who went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure a good clean signal back to Kansas City.  And to all those who went out of their way to welcome us into the far-West family, thank you for your kindness, hospitality and the generosity of your time.  For us, it was an experience we won’t soon forget.

We conclude our archived broadcast coverage with the conversations we aired over KC Cafe Radio during the conference.
