2012 Mariposa Folk Festival Showcase Auditions

       Each year the Mariposa Folk Festival holds Showcase Auditions, these auditions gives chances to three lucky acts to garner coveted spots on this year's bill.  This year's showcase auditions are being held on Sunday May 6th, from 1 – 5 p.m. at Aladdin’sBanquet Hall, in Orillia. The general public is welcome (it's a pay-what-you-can basis). 

  Now from what I remember from last year's auditions you should get there a bit early because it tends to fill up fast and you will defiantly want to find a seat to get comfortable. 

   There will be nine acts performing at this year's auditions , and after all of them have performed a panel of 5 judges will decide which three will get chosen to perform at this year's festival.

The nine hopeful acts are:  

Andy McGuire
Erin Bolton
The Express & Co.
Grady Kelneck
Anne Walker
Sarah Beatty
The Slocan Ramblers
Sarah Calvert
The Unseen Strangers

The Unseen Strangers-The Facebook Waltz

Joe Cornelisse-SSGS
