The Big Orange Tarp at FarWest 2017

by AlanRowoth on October 3, 2017

I’m very excited to be attending my first FarWest Folk Alliance Regional Conference this coming weekend in Bellevue, Washington. It’s the only Folk Alliance Region I have never attended.

I will be hosting a Guerilla showcase in partnership with Access Film Music in their Blue Room #647

Friday 11:30p-12am Beth Wood, Nathaniel Talbot, James Lee Stanley in the round
Saturday 11:30p-12am Alice Howe, Freebo, Chicago Mike Beck in the round

I will also be doing a workshop “Using Video to build Fans and Make Money” on Sunday from 11:30am-1pm in the Evergreen A room.

This will draw on material from several of my recent blog live handouts:

Videos – How and Why

Your Internet in 2016

Live Streaming – What are you waiting for?

Getting the most out of and live streaming alternatives (updated 9/27/17)

Video Q&A and gear notes from SWRFA

Playlist Live D.C. – Impressions

There are many ways to use video to forward your career, I’m going to try to touch on as many as I can while leaving an ample amount of time for Q&A. I do online handouts for several reasons. Primarily because the the attendees can pay attention to what I’m saying instead of madly scribbling notes the whole time, but also because my handouts contain dozens of live links, making it easier for you to drill down to the information you need, and because these are living documents which I may update from time to time. This way, you are always seeing the most current version of the handout. I encourage attendees to peruse some of this material before the conference to determine if the workshop piques their interest and to be thinking about questions they may want to ask.
