Our two annual festivals are the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Kerrville Fall Music Festival.

Jake has played this festival and James Hill is scheduled in 2014.

Founded by Rod Kennedy, the Kerrville Folk Festival has run annually since 1972. It is the longest continuously running music festival of its kind in North America. For 18 straight days and nights each May and June, over 30,000 guests come from all over the world to experience the magic of what we simply call “Kerrville”. The Festival is known internationally as a Mecca for singer songwriters of varying musical style.
