Now in its 17th year, the Four Corners Folk Festival is a 3-day outdoor festival that hosts great musicians such as past performers Keb, Mo, Los Lobos, Punch Brothers, Natalie McMaster, Nickel Creek, and Sam Bush. The festival vibe is family-friendly and the audience is extremely music-savvy. Confirmed headliners for 2012 include Railroad Earth, Loudon Wainwright III, Sam Bush, The Wood Brothers, Darrell Scott, Elephant Revival and more.

Four Corners is looking to book artists and bands to perform live at the festival and is reserving at least one performance slot for a Sonicbids artist or band. The selected artist will perform a 45 minute set on Friday. The selected artist will receive $1,000. All genres are accepted, but must be compatible with the roots music theme (i.e. an African drumming group could work; hardcore rap probably wouldn’t fly).
