dc.description.abstractKerrville. To some it is just a small Hill Country town in Central Texas. However, to others, the name has become synonymous with great singer-songwriters and original music as a result of the now internationally famous Kerrville Folk Festival. The festival, which begins every Memorial Day weekend and spans 18 days, has over the course of its 39-year existence become a unique institution embedded within Texas history and culture. For many longtime festival regulars, it also serves as a reunion of sorts. The sign posted at the entrance, "Welcome Home," sums up the feeling many attendees experience when they return each year to Quiet Valley Ranch, where the festival is held.
