Peer Sessions

Our Peer Sessions provide the space and opportunity for folks who work in specific sectors of the folk music industry to get together to share experiences, practices, and insights, and foster community.

Upcoming Peer Sessions

Peer Sessions are a yearly feature at our in-person conference as well as our Peer Session Weeks at other times throughout the year. We’ll be hosting many in-person sessions during the 2023 conference, and stay tuned for details about virtual sessions happening in 2023 as well!
Please note: these sessions are intended specifically for folks who work in a particular sector of the folk music industry – these are not intended as pitch sessions – so we kindly request that you only sign up for those conversations that align with your specific professional role/roles.
