Folk Alliance International is a non-profit organization that produces an annual conference that is the world's largest gathering of the folk music industry and community – it was founded in 1989, just like me!
It's been on my bucket list for a while now to be booked for this, so I'm thrilled to be heading to Kansas City MO in the USA in February 2023 to perform at this big beautiful event, alongside other Irish artists Síomha, Karan Casey, Talisk, Wallis Bird, The Henry Girls, Shane Hennessy, JigJam and loads more! Every year the festival has a theme, and this year's is "Facing the Future: Sustainability In Folk Music" which I just love.
What's more, I'll be heading over with my bandmates Alec, Hannah and Clare on cello, keys and drums; I can't wait to showcase our full band sound for a US audience of fans and bookers alike.
In the meantime I'm continuing on my Irish tour!
