This may have been a folk festival, but there was hardly a cowboy hat in sight. Folk Alliance wrapped up in Kansas City over the weekend with musicians from every corner of the world– and with them came an insightful sense of regional fashion.

Musicians and industry folk donned vibrant colors, playful prints, and bright boots. And the hats! There were hats in every shape, size, and color. It was a delightful sight to behold. We got attendees to show off their dapper threads in the final hours of the festival.
