FARM announces keynote speaker: Melanie

The Board of Directors of Folk Alliance Region Midwest (FARM) is pleased to announce that Melanie will be the keynote speaker for their 2013 conference.

“Melanie Safka first attracted national attention when she stepped onto the stage at Woodstock. The summer of ’69. as dawn broke, and rain began to fall, she performed on a stage that transformed a generation and changed music forever. And it was here where Melanie launched a legendary career that spans more than 40 years, including the #1 hit single Brand New Key.”

The 2013 FARM conference will be held at the Sheraton Westport Tower in St. Louis, MO on October 24th – 27th.  The conference will offer a full schedule of workshops, performance opportunities and a juried showcase.  In addition to her keynote speech, Melanie will be hosting a master class workshop on Thursday October 24th.

 

More information about the conference including how to register and how to submit for a showcase performance will be available soon on our website:  http://farmfolk.org/
