From the singular twang of a flat-picked guitar to the tight harmonies of a bluegrass band, folk music is more than a sound — it’s an essence. Local labels Mud Stomp Records and Little Class Records work not only to preserve that essence, but to show the rest of the world what Heartland artists have to offer.
- Jody Hendrix is co-founder of Little Class Records headquartered above the Westport Saloon in Kansas City, Missouri.
- Curtis Copeland is co-founder of MudStomp Records with a business address in Overland Park, Kansas.
Artists represented by Little Class Records and MudStomp Records will be in showcases at the 2016 Folk Alliance International Conference. For information about showcases, tickets and artists, visit www.folk.org.
