FAI 2018: The Interviews

Twenty-Eighteen marks the 30th consecutive year that Folk Alliance International has been celebrating folk music, its musicians and those involved in furthering the cause of Folk Music around the world.  That makes this year’s conference theme, 30 Years of Community and Song all the more appropriate.

This year also marks KC Cafe Radio’s 10th year of Bringing You The World’s Finest Original Music, and 5 years of bringing conference coverage to our airwaves.  This year, we continue the tradition of on-air visits with with old friends, as well as new relationships we have made.

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:
