Kerrville New Folk Finalist

The Kerrville Folk Festival is held at the Quiet Valley Ranch in the beautiful Texas Hill Country and is celebrated by a community who considers itself family, returning year after year since 1972.  During the 18-day Festival, as many as 30,000 guests come from all over the world to experience the magic we simply call “Kerrville”.  Even so, each evening’s performances are attended by 800 to 3,000 guests, making everyone’s experience feel intimate.

The highlight for performing songwriters is their annual Grassy Hill New Folk Competition and this year Nancy Beaudette is among the thirty-two finalists. Sixteen of the finalists will perform at the New Folk Concert on Saturday, May 25, and the other sixteen on Sunday, May 26. This is the 48th year for New Folk and these concerts are always one of the highlights of the Kerrville Folk Festival. 

Best of luck to all the finalists! You are all already winners!
