There’ll be more singers, songwriters and guitars per square foot in Stamford this weekend than in any other city in the state, and possibly the entire Northeast. That’s because hundreds of performers as well as presenters, promoters, agents, managers, and folk DJs, will be coming together for the 25th annual New England Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) conference taking place Nov. 7-10 at the Crowne Plaza Stamford Hotel.
NERFA is one of five regional affiliates that make up Folk Alliance International (FAI). Other affiliate regions represent the Southeast, Southwest, Midwest, and West. Each region hosts its own conference, but the big one is the Folk Alliance International conference taking place in New Orleans in January. NERFA, itself, represents a region that includes Connecticut, and reaches far and wide, from Canada to Delaware.
