Folk Music Ontario Conference 2018

If you have never been to FMO then I just don’t even know where to start… It’s a beast like nothing else I’ve experienced!! Music, networking, and development opportunities running all hours of the day. It was such a productive and inspirational weekend for me. This was my first full scale conference and I’m so thankful to have been asked by FMO to be part of their Sponsored Indigenous Showcase. Over the four days I had 17 official meetings with delegates from literally all over the world, several networking mixers and receptions, and my one showcase.

I am so glad that I got the opportunity to be brought into the Conference and Showcasing world, and boy will I be better of for it next time I attend one of these magical beast of a weekends!
