Just wanted to put out a few words about the Folk Alliance International Conference that’s happening next week here in Memphis. This will be my first experience and I am really excited to be a part of what seems like a wonderfully unique conference. The Downtown Marriott has been entirely blocked out for the conference and hundreds of artists, producers, managers, etc will fill the rooms with music and chatter from Thursday to Sunday. Imagine walking down a hallway in a hotel with all doors open and music spilling out until all hours of the night/morning. That’s my expectation. I am playing a couple shows on Wednesday and several “showcases” on Thursday. The Wednesday shows are the ones that I wanted specifically mention, though.
First starting at 1 pm, I will playing a 30 minute storyteller set at the famous Ardent Recording Studio. Should be an amazing atmosphere for a wonderful afternoon of music. And it’s free!
Then, later that evening, at 9:30, I will be among a number of artists including Over The Rhine, Paul Thorn, Bo Keys, Amy Lavere, Deering & Down, Ruthie Foster, and more playing for the FAI Public night. All for $15 dollars and all at the Marriott. Tickets available at Java Cabana, Bluff City Coffee.
I hope to see some of you on Wed!
