The time has come to put all the rumours to rest. It is true! NERFA has found a new home at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Stamford, CT. This fascinating new venue for our conference has many advantages over our former site. However, arranging all the logistics of this move has been extremely time consuming, much more complicated than we could have imagined and has created a situation which has set us back from getting the usual information out to you in a more timely manner.
Therefore, in consideration of our tardiness, ALL DEADLINES HAVE BEEN EXTENDED !!
The deadline for Formal Showcase Applications has been extended to June 15, 2016.
The deadline for TriCentric Showcase Applications has been extended to July 15, 2016.
The Workshop and Panel Discussion Proposals deadline has been extended to June 15, 2016.
We expect to have the conference registration form available in the next few weeks. Even though we are adding many additional features this year, the registration fees will be the same as last year. The hotel reservation form has to be redesigned to accommodate the different options at the hotel and hopefully will be available in about a month.
This summer we will be joining forces with four Folk Festivals to sponsor young artists in The Northeast Region. These are new faces and fresh sounds to the folk world and we are excited to be helping them bring their music to you. They will be performing on various stages throughout the festival weekends.
