Collegiate Songwriters Virtual Showcase

Formerly known as University Songwriters, the Kerrville Folk Festival Collegiate Songwriters program was established to support and promote the continuation of songwriting among college and university students, and to encourage songwriting in college and university curriculum for future generations.  The KFF2020 Collegiate Songwriters Contest was cancelled due to constraints from COVID, but on Saturday, June 6th at 11am, students from any college or university are invited to participate in the Collegiate Songwriters Showcase via Zoom. The Showcase will be hosted by Bernice Lewis (Bio below).
