Knoxville Native Earns Spot in the Bonnaroo of Folk Music

Knoxville ex-pat and current Nashville singer-songwriter Louise Mosrie just landed a monster gig, winning a slot at the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Concerts for Emerging Songwriters. It’s part of the 38th annual Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, sort of the Bonnaroo of folk music, which has featured emerging artists over the years like Lyle Lovett, Michelle Shocked, Robert Earl Keen, and Lucinda Williams. Mosrie competed amid 800 submissions from around the world to make the first cut of 32 singers, and will perform on Saturday, May 23; six finalists will be selected at the festival to perform at the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Winners concert on Sunday, May 31.
