The Selection Process
A committee will review the submissions — last year there were more than 75 — and will invite 12 of the applicants to perform for 10 minutes before an audience on Auditions Night. The audience, using CT Folk’s feedback sheet, will submit comments and will rank the artists in order of preference. CT Folk’s Board of Directors, taking the Audience Feedback into consideration, will select the musicians who will be invited to perform at the Connecticut Folk Festival.
Applicants will be notified of their status prior to February 23rd. Applicants are not compensated for participating in this voluntary process, including performances during Auditions Night in New Haven.
