MUSIC CONNECTION ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP
Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) and Music Connection have formed a partnership to promote the advancement of Folk and Roots music worldwide. The two organizations will be promoting each other’s activities and services to their respective memberships with the intent of reinforcing their mutual interests. Music Connection will provide FAR-West with promotional opportunities in their print and on-line publications and will be a Media Partner at this year’s FAR-West Music Conference.
Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) is the western regional affiliate of Folk Alliance International including California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Alaska and Hawaii in the USA, and Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories in Canada. FAR-West hosts an annual four day conference open to artists, presenters, related music professionals and other supporters. FAR-West's ongoing mission is to foster and promote traditional, contemporary and multicultural folk music, dance, storytelling and related performing arts in the West. FAR-West welcomes a wide variety of styles, levels and disciplines and encourages musical and cultural diversity and excellence.
Founded in 1977 on the principle of bridging the gap between “the street and the elite,” Music Connection has grown from a popular print publication into a spectrum of products and services that address the wants and needs of musicians, the music tech community and industry support services. Music Connection’s broad appeal encompasses the songwriter, producer, studio manager, home recordist, agent, attorney, publicist, label executive and, of course, the musician who’s looking for the informational edge that MC’s products and services deliver.
The 2016 FAR-West Music Conference will take place this October 13th through the 16th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Bellevue, Washington.
Registration for the conference is open and FAR-West is offering a variety of discounts to Folk Alliance International members, Canadian members, qualifying radio DJs and hosts, house concerts, small venues and AFM Local 1000 members.
