After yesterday's deluge, I can state with certainty that it DOES rain in Southern California. As a matter of fact, it pours. After a day in the Exhibit Hall, we moved on to the evening showcases. Folk Alliance sponsors a main showcase from 7:30 to 10:30 (we saw incredible performances by The Arrogant Worms
and Darol Anger
and Mike Marshall
) and then the real fun begins. Showcases everywhere until 3 a.m. In hotel rooms across the complex, folk music of all sorts spilling out into the night. What must the locals think! I stopped by to see David Francey and then on to The Weepies
. Deb Talan, the female half of the group was the first artist added to Jim's playlist through Folk Alley. There are sure to be more additions after we screen all of the CDs we received. On to day 2!
