The Road To Summerfolk
An amazing opportunity for youth to be heard and seen by an international crowd.
Can you answer “YES!” to these questions??
What is youth discoveries?
The Youth Discoveries Program was created to give musicians between the ages of 14- 22 the experience of playing a major folk festival. It also helps to foster a sense of community amongst the up and coming!
Each performer/group has 12-15 minutes to highlight the following:
• Songwriting/compositional originality or repertoire choice/musical proficiency
• Musical ability – including lyrical content
• On-Stage presence
• Interaction with the audience
Winners from preliminary rounds advance to the Discoveries Finale showcase in Owen Sound.
Judges’ feedback regarding your performance will be available should you be interested.
Up to five acts are selected from the Finale Showcase to perform at the Summerfolk Music & Crafts Festival…
BUT WAIT!! THERE’S MORE…
What more could there be? Well, tons more! Take a look at this list of goodies we’ve cooked up for the Finale Winners!
Playing at Summerfolk during a featured Youth Discoveries Showcase and other workshop and concert opportunities throughout the entire weekend.
