The Beery House says
We already had March booked, but couldn't turn down this opportunity. This is going to be an experiment, folks. No potluck tonight (though we won't turn down nothing).As usual, your donations will be greatly appreciated and every dime goes to the performers. This is going to be one of those "musicians' musicians" concerts.
The Kerrville Folk Festival was established in 1972 at the urging of Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul, and Mary). Located near Kerreville, Texas, the KFF is geared towards singer-songwriters of various musical styles and is the longest continuously running festival of its kind in North America. The Kerrville New Folk Concerts have become a highlight of the annual festival. Being named as a New Folk Winner is regarded as a very prestigious honor.
We have 2 of the 2015 New Folk Winners here tonight!

Anna Tivel (Portland) is a Beery House favorite.
"These are organic songs that freely reveal the poetry of the mind, heart, and soul, the sharp imagery of the world translated into sound." - No Depression
"Anna's strength is that of a lyricist. Her songs are filled with lines that intrigue and haunt." - David Steinberg
(ONE of her strengths, David)

Wes Collins (Chapel Hill, NC)
"A friend brought Wes Collins over to my home for a Sunday song circle back in 2008. As we sat around the table getting acquainted, Wes mentioned he had only written 4 songs. The more seasoned writers gave each other a wink and I said ” Let’s hear one”. Wes played his song Diana and when he was done you could have heard a pin drop. Stunned by the beauty and eloquence of the song, I asked him to play it again to make sure I didn’t miss anything.
Over the years Wes has patiently honed his art, craft and humble stage presence to become a rising star in contemporary folk world. Wes won the prestigious 2015 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Contest and has been playing shows from Nashville to Texas. Regardless of how you feel about songwriting contests Wes is in touch with something deeper and his songs reflect". -Eric Bannan
