Conference News

The 14th Annual Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conference will be in Austin Texas at the Holiday Inn Austin Midtown on Sept 26 – 29, 2013.

We have open mics, Official Showcases and In Room showcases, seminars and panels during the day on Friday and Saturday which address many facets of the music business - booking and tour planning, agents and managers, music law, the internet, getting airplay, studio know how, song sharing and discussion, wellness while on the road and looking for alternate ways to get our music to the world – such as in schools and films. We eat meals together and form wonderful new relationships and renew old ones. And we are certain to have FUN!

Artists, managers, agents, venue operators as well as folks who come to listen enthusiastically are all encouraged to attend.

Please join us this year!
