Accepting Performance Applications* July 1 through Sept 3: http://andymay.com/acoustic-kids-applications-walnut-valley-fest
The Acoustic Kids program has been a Walnut Valley Festival event since 1991. Over the years, it has acknowledged and encouraged hundreds of talented young performers and even helped to launch a few careers. It has been covered internationally in the press and studied as a model workshop by other music festivals.
Once again this year the Walnut Valley Festival will feature Acoustic Kids Showcases- with Andy May. THESE ARE NOT CONTESTS! They are opportunities for young pickers and singers (age 16 or younger) to perform on the Festival stage.
* Beginner through pro-level players and singers are welcome!
* Accompanists may be any age.
* Players of electric instruments are welcome in Acoustic Kids!
The Friday Acoustic Kids Showcase is the first of two Acoustic Kids Showcases held at the Walnut Valley Festival each year on Stage 2. The second is Saturday morning, same time and place.
