The 6th Annual Florence Winter Folk Festival is now accepting applications for performers. The festival will be held on January 19-20, 2008. The festival includes acoustic music, arts & crafts, food, demonstrations, jam sessions and workshops.

The proceeds of the festival go towards enhancing the music program in the local schools, providing free concerts to students and to support the local community event center. Last year over 1,600 people attended the festival.

Previous performers have included Mary Flower, Horizon, True North, Hank Cramer, The Young Bucs, The Wanderers and others. Headliners this year are Tom Chapin & Friends and The Limeliters.

As this is an acoustic only venue, groups with loud percussion or electric instruments will likely not be selected. The festival will have a total of 7 performers in addition to their headliners. Each performer is expected to perform a one-hour set. Selected artists may sell CD's and will be paid a honorarium of $500. Lodging can also be provided if necessary for selected artists.

The festival provides a professional sound engineer and sound system, but bands are responsible for their own equipment. Please note that artists are also responsible for their own transportation.
