Folk Alliance

Last month I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to travel to Kansas City to showcase at Folk Alliance International! Thanks Arts Council NI ๐Ÿ™‚

What fun was had..11 showcases in 4 days, lots of throat coat tea, very little sleep, many laughs, hilarious stories, 7 eleven mishaps (what happens in KC stays in KC ๐Ÿ˜‰ the best cinnamon swirl i’ve ever had, bowls of coffee, amazing music and even better friends.

I met so many wonderful people including the great bunch of artists over with Culture Ireland and had the most interesting conversations in the wee hours of the morning.

Check out the spotify playlist I put together with all the artists I discovered over the week!

Here are some pics:
