Held each year since 1972, the Kerrville Folk Festival is the longest continuously running festival of its kind in North America. Over the years it has become known internationally as a Mecca for singer songwriters of varying musical styles… a place where those just beginning to develop their skills have the opportunity to play their music alongside those who are masters. Emerging songwriters as well as teachers are drawn to the festival’s many learning opportunities, such as the 35th Annual Songwriters School, the Roots / Blues Guitar Workshop, Harmonica Workshop, Ukulele Workshop, a Music Law Panel Discussion, and the 14th Annual Professional Development Program for Teachers.
There is truly something for everyone at this festival, from camping, campfire jam sessions, concerts and activities for kids, “Ballad Tree” song sharing sessions, Hill Country bike rides and canoe trips on the Guadalupe to Sunday Folk Song Services, Saturday Shabbat Services and much more. This is one musical celebration that must not be missed! A complete festival schedule, information and tickets can be found at www.kerrvillefolkfestival.
The Kerrville Folk Festival is owned by the Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the support of emerging songwriters and folk music in all its forms.
