All of us at FARM would like to welcome Ellen Stanley to our team. Ellen will assist Annie Capps in presenting our conference this coming October in Lisle-Naperville, Illinois. Following our Gathering, Ellen will assume the role of Conference Director.
Minneapolis based, Ellen Stanley works as a publicist, promoter, DJ and music writer in our community. She was the Director of Publicity & Promotions for indie label Red House Records and has served on the Board of Directors for Folk Alliance International. As a songwriter Ellen performs as Mother Banjo. Called “an outstanding poet” (Inside Bluegrass), she was a Midwest Finalist for the prestigious NewSong Contest and has been featured nationally on SiriusXM and CMT.com.
We are all very excited to work with Ellen in our return to an in-person Gathering and to nurture a seamless transition to our next Conference Director.
