Look here for the Young Artists Schedule as the festival approaches!
The Young Artists Showcase provides an opportunity for musicians 18 years of age, and under, to gain live performance experience with the Tucson Folk Festival audience! Several Young Artists from prior years have gone on to perform full sets as regular performers at subsequent festivals, including Run Boy Run!
TKMA has always recognized the importance of reaching out to the younger generation. They are our replacements and the future balladeers to chronicle all of life’s interesting twists and turns! The influence of Tucson’s music scene is displayed in the diversity and talent these young artists embody. The entire festival is kid and family-friendly, as well. The music, workshops, crafts and food appeal to all ages!
We are often amazed at the talent displayed by these young musicians. Who knows . . . someday you may be saying, “I remember seeing him/her play at the Tucson Folk Festival when he/she was just yay high . . . “
