Special mention should also go to some of the fine performers I was unable to slot due to late registration, schedule conflicts, time limitations, or a variety of other issues. These folks all appeared on my wishlist at some point during the process. Most of them simply registered after all my invites had been sent. All deserve your consideration and I hope you will add them to your list of people to hear at the conference.
In no particular order:
Rachel Laven, Rod Abernethy, Josh Harty, Heather Mae, Caroline Cotter, Bill Nash, Tim Grimm, The Sea The Sea, Melissa Greener, Ben Bedford, Ben Shannon, Dan Navarro, Dar Williams, Anais Mitchell, Molly Ventner, Heather Pierson, Hope Dunbar, Ian Foster, Susan Cattaneo, Ronny Cox, Jack Williams, Alice Hasen, Zoe Mulford, Dan Weber, Emily White, Nichole Wagner, Rosie and the Riveters, Alexis Normand, Joe Jencks, Russell DeCarle, and The Young Novelists.
If I posted videos from all the artists, it would likely choke your web browser. Here are a handful to whet your appetite.
