|Featured Artists WTBQ Podcasts Piano Services Contact||
Welcome!Since 2001 Talent Connections has been representing many outstanding singer songwriters such as Tom Pacheco, Tim Grimm, Irene Kelley, Anke Summerhill, The Twangtown Paramours and E'lissa Jones. And now Talent Connections has taken on a new direction... It's quickly becoming a home base for a number of "featured artists" heard on the Hootenanny Cafe Mini Concerts. These air in the Hudson Valley on WTBQ (93.5FM) every Sunday at 9PM (est) or you can listen from anywhere at wtbq.com.
We hope to facilitate connections between artists, venues and agents. Our new focus and purpose is to establish a network for artists; concert, coffee house, and festival presenters; as well as interested agents. All the "featured artists" of the Hootenanny Cafe Mini Concerts and on the Talent Connections pages are established touring / recording artists worth taking a look at.
