Our second year of coverage from the 2014 Folk Alliance Region Midwest Conference in Saint Louis Missouri was highlighted by the conversations we had with conference attendees. From musicians, music industry professionals, radio station DJs and venue operators, we were impressed with the breadth of conversation and learning we acquired at this year’s conference.
We hope you also enjoyed our live coverage. Over the three days at the conference, over 22 hours of live coverage, including 6 hours of live performances from our Private Showcase stage, was provided for your listening pleasure. Here, we present all the conversations that were recorded from our daytime coverage at the conference. Elsewhere you will find recordings from our live late-night showcase broadcasts. If you missed any our live coverage, you can enjoy it all right here.
Next Year the conference relocates to Iowa City, Iowa. A community rich in art and culture, Iowa City will offer even greater opportunities for networking, performance and fun. Stay tuned to the FARM website for more details!

Our third and final night of live broadcasts from our Private Showcase room at the 2014 Folk Alliance Region Midwest conference was full of encore presentations, encore performances, and a few surprises! Our thanks to Graydon James and Laura Spink, who graced our stage with a beautiful “bonus” song, Kerry Patrick Clark who fought through the fatigue to bring us another stellar performance, Ann Armstrong and Steve Hughes for some stellar blues, Victor James Dougherty with a refreshing “surprise” by bringing along his friends Guy Pernetti and Poor Lazarus to his performance, and to father and son and St. Louis natives Elliott and Bryan Ranney for wrapping up the evening’s show.
