On the NextEra Energy Main Stage on Saturday, September 16, in beautiful 18th Street Park, eleven outstanding area singer-songwriters will kick off the 2017 Ferdinand Folk Festival with a round of their original songs. The third annual Singer-Songwriter Showcase Saturday night, August 19, featured these artists in the Forest Park Jr.-Sr. High School Auditorium. Their music inspired, moved, and humored the audience, and the committee is excited that everyone will be able to see them again next month.
From left to right, Steven Wagler, Joel Curtis, Matt Colson, Anna Wrasse, Clayton Schroeder, Hayley Payne, Toby Ellis, Tonya Buckler, Edward Burch, and Rick Burch. Missing from photo are Dawn Keller and Art the Dude (Art Woodward).
Special thank you to Showcase MCs Charlotte Olson and Joy Holt from WBDC, FM 100.9, a founding sponsor of the festival.
