Highlights of Folk Alliance in KC last weekend

8:02am - 12:02pm

Looking back at last weekend's Folk Alliance conference in Kansas City, with music from the latest FA compilation CD and lots of songs by some of my favourites and new discoveries from the event. Plus a few selections to round out Black History Month, a few Welsh songs for St. David's Day (March 1st), and some new music from Irish trad band Altan, who play two shows tomorrow night at St. James Hall.
