"Spirit of Kerrville and Kate Wolf Memorial Award recipient, Crow Johnson Evans brings the skills of decades of songwriting, performing, and mentoring to the ranch. Her first of a dozen appearances on Kerrville's main stage was in 1980. Fifty-six of her songs are recorded either by Crow or other artists, like Mary MacGregor, Michael Johnson, Clare Lynch, and Cary Creed. She believes each person has a valid and unique artist's voice and she loves helping them come to own it. "
A multiple mainstage performer at Kerrville, Rebecca has been a nationally touring artist for over 30 years playing shows from small living rooms to Red Rocks Amphitheater, BBC television and radio, World Cafe, Falcon Ridge Festival, Rocky Mtn Folks Festival, the Bluebird Cafe, and Opryland. KUNC radio describes Rebecca's performances as ...effortlessly taking you from tender ballads to knock-you-to-your-knees blues." Westword Magazine says, " Her songs hit like little earthquakes." She has been facilitating Vocal Freedom and Creative Mastery Workshops for 30 years. Rebecca says, "One of my favorite things to do in life is help people liberate their voices and shine!"
