7:30 PM (Doors Open at 7:00 PM)
Musicians (individuals or groups) from New England, New York and New Jersey who hope to perform at the Connecticut Folk Festival on September 10th have applied by submitting a video of one song to CT Folk. A committee has reviewed the submissions and has invited 10 of those applicants to perform a short set before an audience at this Auditions Night concert.
That night’s audience will participate in the selection process by writing comments on a feedback sheet about the artists they’ve seen and will rank the artists in order of whom they would like to see again at the Festival. This information will be tallied and taken into consideration by the members of CT Folk’s Board of Directors, who will make the final selections.
These musicians have been selected to perform during the 2016 Auditions Night Concert:
The KC Sisters
G Rockwell and the Still River Ramblers
Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers and Wendy Ramsey
Adult Admission at the door is $20. Purchase Tickets here in advance and receive a 25% discount! This “advance ticket purchase” option is only available until 3:00 PM on the day of the performance.
