Last summer, Katie was named to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival‘s prestigious Emerging Artists Showcase. A loooooong drive there and back (helped along by Katie’s generous mom and stepfather) resulted in a fun weekend full of lots of new friends. The Emerging Artists Showcase is really an end in itself, but 3 artists are named as “Most Wanted to Return” the following year. Katie didn’t quite make the top 3, but her 16% of the vote placed her in the “Very Honorable Mention” category with 6th place. What an honor indeed!
