I had a wonderful time at the Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas City MO. 

Pete Garfinkel Songwriter Folk Alliance

 “The world’s largest gathering of the folk music industry and community…”.  

I played six private showcases over four days and stayed up way too late listening to wonderful music from all over the globe!  

I had a blast catching up with artists that I see once or twice a year - swapping stories and sampling BBQ across KC!  

Already looking forward to next year's conference in Montreal, Canada.

It was an exciting night! Was I ready? Will it go ok? Well, it did, and I was overjoyed!

I had the great pleasure and honor to be invited by my music publishing house, Hillbilly Gold, (ASCAP) to perform an original song at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville along with their signed artists.

For years, I dreamed of sitting in that honored circle among seasoned songwriters sharing songs and the camaraderie with those present, and the spirits of those who came before.

The wonderfulness of being surrounded by an attentive audience there to listen, really listen, to the lyrics and stories taking life in the songs.

It was an exciting night!
