But enough about the weather. I'm going to temporarily change directions here at the ol' blog, for a handful of posts over the next few weeks. I went to the Folk Alliance International conference's Folk Fest last week, in it's 3rd year of (at least) a 5-year run here in KC, and got to see some extraordinary performers. A $30 ticket bought 10AM-5PM access to music on 5 stages, with performers changing each hour. I saw and talked to some great artists, and I'm going to take the next several posts and let you all know about them.
For tonight, as an into, here are some pictures from the Folk Fest.
From the Sunday morning gospel brunch!
