After an amazing week writing in The House of Song in Austin, we flew straight to Kansas City to network and showcase at the Folk Alliance International Conference!
My first showcase was with the British Underground alongside brilliant UK artists Jake Morely, Danni Nicholls, John Smith, Jess Morgan and more,
The rest of my showcases were in The House of Songs room with solo sets and ‘in the round’ sets where another artist and myself is on stage alternating songs. I performed alongside Tom West, Linnea Backlund and Danni Nichols.
I saw so much great music throughout the week and met incredible people. Highlights were Ian Fisher, Jorma Kaukonen, Kolonial and Monique Clare.
To end the most amazing week, I got introduced to living legend Tom Paxton after his writing critique session, he was very generous with his time and listened to some of my new material and then kissed me on the head! Needless to say he like what he heard!
