Folk Alliance 2016
(Kansas City MO, Feb.17-21)

This was our second year at Folk alliance, and this time we really got all the way into it. With the indispensible help of Sonia Rutstein and Terry Irons, our guy Gary Mobley — the hardest working man in the music trade — did double duty.

By day he held forth at our merchandise booth...booth

...and by night he hosted our "private showcase," a hotel room turned mini-night club. We called it the Capo-Cabana, and it ran as late as 4am presenting some excellent talent.

Here is Tret Fure at our private showcase, singing a song on which she utilizes three capos.


Our old friend Bill Nash showed up at the booth. Not to be outdone, he calls and raises one, showing us a tune on which he uses FOUR capos!

Our little nightclub, the Capocabana, showcased some really topnotch talent. Most of the time the light was too low for getting a good photo, let alone video, so we don't have much to share here. But our deepest appreciation and thanks go out to the stars of our show (in order of appearance, almost):

Cary Morin
C. Daniel Boling
Abigail Stauffer
Amilia Spicer and Tom Prasada-Rao
Kate McLeod and James Scott
Martin Harley
Sarah Lou Richards
Alice Peacock
Amber Rubarth
Marc O'Reilly
Eric Andersen
The Goodtime Travelers
The Small Glories
Pushing Chain
Tret Fure
Anna Vogelzang
Melissa Greener

...and most of all, the one and only SONiA, who played each night at midnight. We love you, Sonia.

At least there was some natural light somewhere. Sunlit hall 3, where our stand was formerly located, was not used this year.
We were relocated to hall 8, which Gary now refers to as "the dungeon."
