Kerrville Folk Festival

I can't believe I've never devoted a post to The Kerrville Folk Festival.
My friend Robert introduced me to Kerrville music many years ago and my wife and I attended our first festival in 1990 shortly after we were married. A few years later we ended up moving to Kerrville and I got to attend the Folk Festival pretty regularly for several years while working for the local daily newspaper.
I haven't been back in a longtime, but hopefully we will got out there in the next year or two now that our kids are a bit older.
In the meantime, I'm pleased to find that most of the performers I discovered and listened to out there now have active Web sites where you can keep up with their latest recording efforts. Here are some of my favorite Folk Festival performers I saw back in the day:

Tish Hinojosa
Chuck Pyle
Dana Cooper
Crow Johnson

Butch Hancock
Jimmie Dale Gilmore
