FAR-WEST AND KC CAFÉ RADIO ANNOUNCE
CONTINUED PARTNERSHIP FOR MUSIC CONFERENCE
Folk Alliance Region – West (FAR-West) and KC Café Radio proudly announce the continuation of their highly successful professional partnership for this year’s upcoming FAR-West Music Conference in Bellevue, WA. This partnership began last year at FAR-West’s Conference in Oakland CA, where KC Café Radio produced live webcasts of significant portions of the conference. Included in their excellent coverage were the Thursday night Venue’s Choice Showcase Concert, the Friday and Saturday night Official Showcase Concert, the Saturday afternoon Best of the West Awards Luncheon and an extensive series of interviews with FAR-West artists attending the conference. These conference highlights were not only webcast live as they happened, but are also archived on the KC Café website.
