Austin Events and Festivals

Kerrville Folk Festival

Ticket Info - See Site

The Kerrville Folk Festival, as its slogan states, has been "Celebrating Songwriters since 1972."

Located at the Quiet Valley Ranch in the Texas Hill Country a few minutes south of Kerrville, Texas, the festival is an 18 day and night musical and community affair.

Spanning multiple musical genres, from traditional folk, bluegrass, and Americana to accoustic rock, blues, country, and jazz, the emphasis and common denominator of the festival is decidedly singer-songwriter.

Festival organizers aim for a blend of nurturing and promoting the next generation of singer-songwriters along with performances by more seasoned talent. The Kerrville Folk Festival boasts having played a number of established musicians in their early days including: Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Michelle Shocked, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Robert Earl Keen, Lucinda Williams, and Nancy Griffith.

Notable 2011 performers at Kerrville include: Asleep at the Wheel, Eliza Gilkyson, Slaid Cleaves, Guy Forsyth, Marcia Ball, Peter Yarrow, and Trout Fishing in America.

See day by day performer list for Kerrville 2011 below.

In addition to all the great music, the community experience of the event is what makes the festival so magical. With on site campgrounds accommodating both tents and RVs (in somewhat limited supply), the Kerville festival transforms itself from a series of outdoor concerts into a musical vacation you'll never forget. For more festival camping information, be sure to check out the official website.

Bring the kids, too. In addition to the music, there are dedicated activities with them in mind as well.
