Enjoy the Music of the 2021 Virtual NERFA Conference, Nov. 11-14

November 11 @ 8:00 am - November 14 @ 5:00 pm

Enjoy the Music of the 2021 Virtual NERFA Conference,
Nov. 11-14

In addition to serving as president of the Folk Music Society of Huntington, I led the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA), a regional affiliate of Folk Alliance International (FAI), as its board president from 2016-2020 and still serve on its board of directors, as well as that of FAI. Each year, several other FMSH board members join me and some 700 performing artists, presenters, promoters, agents and managers, folk DJs, and others actively engaged in contemporary and traditional folk music for NERFA’s annual conference. In light of the ongoing pandemic, this year’s conference is taking place online only, Nov. 11-14, and its music showcases (through which we have discovered and booked many talented artists to perform for our audiences) are being opened to folk music fans.

You can purchase a Music Only virtual ticket for $20 (plus a $2.97 processing fee) and enjoy hours of music by artists from across the U.S. and Canada from the comfort of your own homes over this Veterans Day weekend and for 30 days afterwards (since all of the showcases are being recorded for later viewing). Although the conference also includes panel discussions and workshops, keynote speakers, peer group sessions, and awards presentations, the $20 Music Only ticket enables music lovers to enjoy curated online showcases only. These include all juried Formal Showcases, the Suzie Wollenberg Folk DJ Showcase, a BIPOC Showcase, open mics, and late-night guerrilla showcases.
