Podcaster to co-host Private Showcase Room at Folk Alliance International

Posted by

Folk Alliance International is an annual gathering of 2500-3000 folk musicians, bookers, publicists and industry personnel. The next conference is in Kansas City Missouri February 14-18, 2008.

Saint John-based podcaster Tom MacArthur (The Folkchef's Kitchen) has agreed to co-host a Private Showcase Room for the upcoming conference. These rooms are on three hotel floors and operate from 10:30 PM to 4:00 AM, and are an excellent venue for emerging artists to perform. Tom will be scheduling two nights of performers in this room. The 2019 FAI conference will be in Montreal, so a strong NB presence in 2018 would hopefully act as an effective lead-in to Montreal. Any NB based acts who are interested in a slot or more information about the FAI conference should contact Tom directly at
