It was the 47th international Folk Alliance conference this weekend. Hundreds of musicians and industry folks flocked to Kansas City to be a part of the festivities. We played 6 showcases and were joined by some of our favorite people; Mark Erelli, Eben Pariser, Andrew Green, Craig Akin & Tony Montalbano. We swooned over artists like Dan Bern, Tall Heights, Rose Cousins, Jeff Plankenhorn, Peter Mulvey and many more!
We split rooms with our friends (/husbands) Roosevelt Dime, and were privy to their very cool recording project. They collaborated with a dozen Folk Alliance artists on an old Bunny Wailer song "Pass it On" - about helping each other out and paying it forward. It came together very organically with artists like The Stray Birds, Laura Cortese, Ellis Paul, Matt Nakoa & a whole lot more. The song will be mixed then sold pay-what-you-like, with all profits going to the Equal Justice Initiative.
The conference was an inspiration start to finish!
Next up... we open for JERRY DOUGLAS, Sunday March 1st at Tarrytown Music Hall.
See you soon!
Molly, ABbie & Laurie
