Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) one of five regions of Folk Alliance International is the western regional affiliate, including in the USA: California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Alaska and Hawaii, and in Canada: Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories. FAR-West's ongoing mission (since 2002) is to foster and promote traditional, contemporary and multicultural folk music, dance, storytelling and related performing arts in the West. We invite you to join us this October -- to listen, celebrate, recognize, and enjoy the richness of folk music in the West.  Our regional conference offers an affordable, intimate and interactive way for acoustic artists and presenters to focus on the folk community in the western region of the US and Canada. Join us for four days of music, learning and connecting. We welcome a wide variety of styles, levels and disciplines, encouraging musical and cultural diversity and excellence. We are building a stronger folk community for all ages and we encourage you to join us as we share our performances, educational opportunities and more!
