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 the 2018 FAR-West Music Conference in Woodland Hills, CA.
This partnership began at the 2015 FAR-West 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 webcast live and then archived on the KC Café and the FAR-West websites.
Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) is the western region of Folk Alliance International including in the USA: California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Alaska and Hawaii, and in Canada: Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories. FAR-West hosts an annual four day conference open to artists, presenters and supporters. FAR-West's ongoing mission (since 2002) is to foster and promote traditional, contemporary and multicultural folk music, dance, storytelling and related performing arts in the West.
For ten years, KC Café Radio has been playing The World's Finest Original Music to fans of independent music 24 hours-a-day, via its website, kccaferadio.com.
