Americana Conference 2001

On the first weekend of November, the Second Annual Americana Conference was held in Nashville, at The Hilton downtown. Registration was up nearly fifty per cent, from 368 to 540. It was spread out between artists, songwriters, promoters, radio, labels, and press. Retail attendance was a little light, unfortunately, because many were on corporate travel constraints since the terrorist attacks.

This is the first of a two part series, the second will be a report of the Folk Alliance Convention in February. For musicians and fans alike, we hope to contrast and compare the Folk scene per se with the Americana and Alt-Country scene.
