Presenter – DJ Showcase

“…you guys have created something wonderful … down in Kansas City I walked into a big room full of genuinely friendly, supportive, and PHENOMENALLY talented people, all interested in creating a vibrant community and extending a helping hand to their fellow musicians.”

 – Rev. Judi Hendricks,
FARMette 2017 attendee

We had so much fun and we were just truly blown away by the supportive and friendly FARM community.”

– The Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers, 2016 Official Showcase Artist

“We are America’s Heartland, and our conference exudes a certain relaxed, charming, and simple approach to Folk and roots music …This community comes together once a year and it is a treasured time. Come back ! OR, join us as a first-timer. Either way, I think you’ll be recharged in ways that will surprise you.”

–  Tim Grimm, Songwriter, Performer, Actor
2014 Key Note Speaker

“FARM made me see and feel that I’m part of a songwriting community. This was such an exciting and a happy realization. I came away with renewed energy and resolve for my own work, and who doesn’t need that?”

– Michael P. Smith, Songwriter, Actor, 2011 Key Note Speaker

It is the desire of the FARM Board of Directors to honor both Presenters & Folk DJs. This Thursday Night Showcase provides invited FARM Presenters (Venues) & DJs the opportunity to select an artist they would like to introduce to the FARM community. 

the Selection Process

  • The FARM Board of Directors will invite Presenters and DJs to select a musician for the showcase.
  • The showcase coordinators (TBD) will compile a list of artists who would like to be considered. However, Presenters & DJs are not required to select from this list.
  • Because we’re trying to raise awareness of FARM, Presenters & DJs are encouraged to recruit an artist who they believe could benefit from the experience and exposure – preferably one who has never attended FARM.
  • The performer may not have performed in any prior FARM Official Showcase or DJ / Venue Showcase.
  • Selected artists MUST register for the entire conference. (Remember that registration is discounted for all first-timers.)

More information will be available in June.
