KERRVILLE, Texas – – – The Kerrville Folk Festival 2014 opens on May 22 with a stellar rockin’ lineup. First up at 7PM to begin this 18 day songwriters event is Steve Poltz one of the most entertaining individualistic artists to hit the scene in many years. He is followed by Parker Millsap from the Okemah Oklahoma area (think Woody Guthrie and Grammy nominated John Fullbright). It has been wondered what DO they have in the water there with several amazing young Oklahoma writers making big waves in the industry really quickly. Ray Benson, from Asleep at the Wheel, has a new solo CD release and has been touring with the band from Austin, MilkDrive. They have played Kerrville Festivals several times with their own material and will be featured in a short set before Ray comes out to share his songs with MilkDrive as his band. Closing the opening evening is Dale Watson and his Lone Stars. They will have the dancers in full swing that’s for sure.
Located at Quiet Valley Ranch, nine miles south of the Texas Hill Country resort community of Kerrville, the 43rd annual Kerrville Folk Festival will run for 18 straight days, from Thursday, May 22 through Sunday, June 8, 2014.
