These musicians have been selected as the Finalists in this year’s Grassy Hill Songwriting Competition. Each will perform a short set, before a panel of music-industry judges, during the Connecticut Folk Festival & Green Expo. The winner will receive a cash prize, will perform a short set on the Festival Main Stage later that day, and will be awarded a slot in the 2018 Festival lineup.
