FAR-West Annual Conference

10 October, 2019 to 13 October, 2019

Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West), the western regional chapter of Folk Arts Alliance, fosters and promotes traditional, contemporary and multicultural folk music, dance, storytelling and related performing arts in the USA and in Canada. The FAR-West conference is a four-day, music-filled weekend for the folk and acoustic music community to unite, exchange songs and ideas, re-charge and do business. FAR-West also honors the history, diversity and multiculturalism of the folk community. It is designed to provide contact and communication between and among musicians, presenters, radio programmers, and artist support consultants and others interested in promoting and supporting folk and acoustic music and dance. In addition to networking with others in the folk community, FAR-West offers workshops and panels where musicians can develop their skills both as performers and in marketing themselves. We also emphasize showcases large and small to provide opportunities for as many people as possible to perform in different-sized rooms. This allows concert hosts and others involved in booking acts to sample a wide variety of the talent available. With the exception of the public evening concerts on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, conference events are only open to registered participants.
