KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KPR) - Thousands of singers, songwriters and instrumentalists recently gathered in Kansas City for the annual Folk Alliance International Conference. The performers relished the opportunities to meet and jam with others from around the world but also to meet booking agents, festival promoters, record label scouts and other industry representatives. Tom Parkinson spoke with some of the musicians from Lawrence about their experience at the conference and prepared this audio postcard.
