This year marks the 100th birthday of influential folklorist and musician Alan Lomax (1915-2002), who collected folks like Muddy Waters, Lead Belly, Aunt Molly Jackson, and Woody Guthrie. To celebrate, Folk Alliance International joins the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center (AFC) to invite YOU to perform your own version of a Lomax-collected song or tune on the Alan Lomax Centennial Stage at FAI’s upcoming conference in Kansas City, February 18-22, 2015. To reserve your spot, just fill out this short form and submit it by 5 p.m. on Monday, February 16, 2015.
NOTE: This showcase is open to ALL registered Folk Alliance International conference attendees who wish to perform… and there is no fee for participating. Performers will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit: 1 song each; solo or duo only. Thanks!
