I’m beyond excited about FAI’s move to Kansas City. This city, this music and cultural community, is both a boon and a beneficiary. I’m teaching at the brand new concurrent Music Camp as well as showcasing at the conference, participating in panels, and coordinating the traditional music panels.
I’ve been watching and joining the changing role of folk music over the last decade. More than ever, I embrace the word folk to describe my genre. With my dedication to old time music and the traditionalists I’ve learned from, to my personal folk music (music of various genres that helped shape my creative life from the time I was very young), and my own new creations, it’s truly an exciting time to be making and teaching music in the world.
Join me at the Conference and Camp!
