Folk Alliance International is the world’s largest gathering of the folk music industry and community. It has long held ties to the rich musical offering of Australia, providing a foothold into the North American festival market as well as direct access to agents, managers, and media for touring acts. Similarly it has provided an invaluable launching pad for countless North American and International artists to connect with Australian presenters and industry.
Aengus Finnan, the new Irish-Canadian Executive Director of Folk Alliance states “There is enormous opportunity to strengthen the relationship between our organization and Australia, and we will be actively working to build industry, festival, and artistic bridges in order to provide a more formal and robust presence at future conferences.”
