Folk Alliance International 2017: GRMS Official Showcase
Green Room Music Source Official Showcase @ Folk Alliance International 2017 - Sat, Feb, 20th 2017.
We were so pleased to share a small helping of amazing artists in East/West Pershing.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the craziness that is Folk Alliance International we beg you find out for yourself because it truly escapes explanation. We, however, are a team of go-getters and those to never turn down a challenge; so here goes nothing: Once a year thousands of music industry professionals, musicians, press, and the exceptionally-brave-yet-few music fans descend upon a very unfortunate city (just kidding, they love us).
We'd like to say the mayhem lasts 4 days, however, we like to look at as roughly 100 hours ... no one sleeps.
This year was held - as it has been for the last 4 and will once more before moving to Montreal for one year - in Kansas City, MO. The days consist of industry panels & convention booths, the evenings (6:00pm - 10:00pm) kicked off the official showcases, and the nights (10:30pm - 4:00am) consist of three floors of private showcases held in makeshift venues throughout the converted hotel rooms. We had an amazing tiki bar
An amazing and sleepless time was held by all.
The GRMS #NoBandsAnIsland Private showcases were held in room #656.
Look out for our other blog post featuring pictures for those 4 nights and follow our instagram @nobandsanisland for clips of performances throughout the fest, from our private showcases, and a sneak peak at the GRMS staff favorites.
Hope to see you at #FAI2018
In order of appearance: Michael Fracasso, Jess Klein, Gaelynn Lea Tressler, Bella Hardy, Rod Picott, & Tim Easton.
