Up-and-coming roots musicians are in the spotlight in our annual Emerging Artist Showcase, one of the highlights of our summer festival and always a fun event. Watch for more details to be announced this spring.

We consider an “Emerging Artist” to be a band or individual of any age who has not performed regularly at major festivals or concert series. Showcase applicants are solo acts, duos and groups playing acoustic roots-based styles such as folk, blues, Bluegrass, Americana, world music, jazz, country, folk-rock, Celtic, and the like.

If that sounds like you, we want to hear from you! Applications open in late spring, and we'll ask for video samples of your live performances. Our judges will select five finalists to perform at our Showcase this summer, where the winner can earn a cash prize and the opportunity to perform for a main stage crowd.
