For all of us at KC Cafe Radio, the 27th Annual Folk Alliance International conference proved to be our most rewarding experience yet. It was an honor to host such an outstanding group of fine musicians from across the United States and around the world on our Showcase stage and on our air.
We wish to thank all of those musicians who shared their musical talent, making our nearly 20 hours of live coverage possible and entertaining. Thanks also to others who were not scheduled to perform on our stage yet dropped by just to say “hello” and lend their support.
Thanks to Sally Smith, proprietor of Whistlestop Antiques in Belton, Missouri, and a KC Cafe Radio board member, who assisted behind the scenes with our production efforts.
Thanks to Folk Alliance International, who placed us inside such a beautiful performance venue at the Westin Crown Center Hotel. It was a treat to look out our windows and gaze over Union Station, the downtown Kansas City skyline, and the Crossroads Arts District, while we enjoyed the live music.
And most importantly, thank you, dear listener, for supporting this excellent demonstration of Bringing You The World’s Finest Original Music with your listenership of our live coverage. If you missed any of it, you will find the archived recordings elsewhere on this site, just search for “FAI2015.”
Here are the interviews we recorded between performances at our Showcase stage:
Our thanks to Bliss Hippy, Steve Sterner and Sundown, Guy Pernetti and Joseph Eid for their contributions to a great show.
