Keep Austin Artsy Podcast is BACK!

The Kerrville Folk Festival is set on Quiet Valley Ranch in the rolling green hills between Kerrville and Medina, Texas. People come for the day to hear the headlining acts – like the Indigo Girls this year. They come camp out for a night to take part in the campfire song-circles that run well past midnight. Or they Kerrvive – stay for the full 18 days of the fest. Old-time Kerrverts and new-to-the-ranch Kerrvirgins alike travel from as far as Australia and as nearby as the ranch itself to camp out, sing, fire-spin, swim in the Medina, play and laugh. But mostly, they come because the Kerrville Folk Festival is their home. Beth Cortez-Neavel spoke to a couple of Kerrverts about the festival’s motto “Welcome Home” and why these two words keep people coming back year after year.
