The Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation
Our Purpose, our Vision, Our Mission
Our purpose is to educate the public about the benefits and characteristics of folk music. We exist to provide a unique experience in a musical community that is enjoyable and rewarding to the listeners and the performers who share their craft.
Our vision is of a community where songwriters and their craft are treasured and supported and folk music is valued and enjoyed by people of all ages and circumstances.
Our mission is to promote public appreciation and support for songwriters, the songwriting craft, and the gift that folk music offers to the world.
The Kerrville Folk Festival Board of Directors is a dedicated group of members who are passionate about the Festival and the gifts songwriting brings to the world. On a volunteer basis, these folks dedicate at least one evening a month to a business meeting and many board members take on additional leadership roles to sustain Foundation activities. When meetings are face-to-face, board members pay all their own expenses.
