>Every February, about 2,000 artists and music industry people converge on Memphis for the Folk Alliance International Conference. In one long weekend, there are seemingly millions of concerts, all under one roof. I was lucky enough to be a showcased artist at this year’s FAI Conference–I played something like seven shows in four days. Of course, I had a blast.
(Click here to read my Another Cup of Coffee interview with the conference’s co-director, Cindy Cogbill).
One of the best parts of the week was getting to hear so many other artists perform. I threw together a video of a very few favorites from the week. If you like what you hear, check these artists out!
I’ll probably post something longer about the Folk Conference itself, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy the vid, and have a great weekend. See y’all next week for a double dose of YouTube Concerts (#4 Monday, #5 Wednesday)!
