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:

FAI 2015: Conversations At Folk Alliance

AJ Genero, Kathy Forste and Hilary Scott posing for the camera following their Showcase performanceFor 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.

The view outside from the KC Cafe Radio showcase room: Union Station and downtown Kansas CityThanks 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:

FAI 2015: Saturday Night Showcase

KC Cafe Radio's Showcase Room at the 2015 Folk Alliance International conference

Nearly 20 hours of live coverage from the 2015 Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City, Missouri came to a musical close Saturday night, February 21.  The final 8 performances from our Showcase stage brought talent both near and far from the Kansas City community that once again played such an outstanding role hosting this International event.

Our thanks to Bohemian Highway Folk, Stephanie Urbina Jones, Brett Newski, Chad Abernathy, Josh Harty, DC Bloom, Ann Armstrong and Steve Hughes, Poor Lazarus and Street Corner Choir for sharing their musical talent with our worldwide audience.
