Current Los Angeles Regional Champions:

Moira Smiley and VOCO

Hailing from Los Angeles, and just named as honored representative of western U.S. & Canada at the International Folk Alliance Music Conference, Moira Smiley & VOCO is a fiery roots vocal band making new song as it pulls on roots of Eastern European and Appalachian harmony and rhythm. "The multilingual singing of Smiley's VOCO ensemble is especially fascinating" (Los Angeles Times).
