Southeast Regional Folk Alliance Hosting Spring Conference

One of the biggest annual East Coast conferences aimed at folk music professionals will take place at the scenic Montreat Conference Center, 20 minutes northeast of Asheville, North Carolina, May 15-17. The four-day affair, put on by the Southeast Regional Folk Alliance (SERFA), offers performances, informative panels, instructional workshops, and keynote speakers in an attempt to, in the words of SERFA president Kim Richardson, “bring together this community of music-minded folks and provide the space and time to connect and re-energize together—to ask questions, share lessons learned, and inspire one another—not to mention, to play a ton of music in this stunning setting.”
