It is that time of year again, the annual Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Award Winner Fall Tour.
The Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition
There is a yearly competition every May at the Kerrville Folk Festival to discover promising new singer-songwriters called the New Folk Competition. Thirty-two finalists are selected from a field of up to 800 entries to share two of their original songs in an afternoon appearance on the stage of the Threadgill Theater during the Festival. From these 32 finalists, six Award Winners are selected by a small group of well-established performing songwriters, to take home cash and other tangible prizes.
A win at Kerrville carries considerable prestige in the singer/songwriter community. This is in part due to the peer-professional judging and the festival’s long history of recognizing emerging artists who have later gone on to wider success. There have also been examples of notable performers who have appeared as finalists in the competition without ever earning a win.
2015 Award Winners are:
David Berkeley (Santa Fe, NM) www.davidberkeley.com
Wes Collins (Chapel Hill, NC) www.wescollins.com
Amy Kucharek (Somerville, MA) www.amykucharik.com

Anna Tivel (Portland, OR) www.annativel.com

The 2015 competition delivered an incredibly talented and diverse group of award winners. You will not want to miss this opportunity to see these emerging artists in the intimate Sycamore Creek listening environment.
