The 2018 Kerrville New Folk Award Winners

The Kerrville New Folk Competition is a yearly event to discover promising singer-songwriters. The competition was established in 1974 by Kerrville Folk Festival Founder Rod Kennedy. Because of the legacy of gifted songwriters who have participated in the competition and the success they have gone on to have in the music community, a win at Kerrville carries considerable prestige in the singer-songwriter community.

Thirty-two finalists are selected from a field of over 800 entries to come to the Kerrville Folk Festival and share two of their original songs. From these 32 finalists, six winners are selected by a small group of well-established performing songwriter/judges, many of whom have been winners of the competition in their own right.

The 2018 Kerrville New Folk Award Winners who will be performing in the round at Barker House Concerts on Tuesday, Nov 6, 2018 includes:

• Sarah Morris (Minneapolis, Minnesota) www.sarahmorrismusic.com
• Helene Cronin (Plano,Texas) www.helenecronin.com
• Mac Leaphart (Nashville, Tennessee) www.macleaphart.com
• John Butler (Matlacha, Florida) www.johnrbutler.com
• Rich Krueger (Evergreen Park, Illinois) www.richkrueger.com

Note: Ben Bedford is also a 2018 Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Award winner, but is unable to perform with the group due to a previous commitment.

Julie Slim is a Lebanese-American multilingual jazz and world music vocalist based in Austin TX, known for her versatility in singing in a variety of genres. Her most recent project is RendezVous, founded in 2013, which specializes in jazz and international standards from the 1920s-1960s. Julie's precise and warm vocals transport the audience to a different time and place, reinterpreting standards in a variety of jazz and latin rhythms. Julie Slim & RendezVous are currently in a monthly residency at The Skylark Lounge, every third week of the month. In addition to two previously released CD's with RendezVous, Julie has recently released a full-length French CD titled "Promenade Sentimentale", an emotional journey through the many facets of love, available at CdBaby, Bandcamp and other online music sites as well as at Waterloo Records in downtown Austin, TX. On November 22, 2017 Julie won an Honorable Mention Award in the USA Songwriting competition for the song, Sarabande de Solitude with music by Shawn Ellison and lyrics by Julie Slim.

Julie collaborates with many local jazz and world music bands in Austin, and is happy to have worked with the Austin Jazz Workshop over the years, as a vocalist and educator. Paying it forward, Julie sings with the Austin chapter of Threshold Choir on a weekly basis.

Julie is also an accomplished actress, having performed in regional repertory theaters like Muhlenberg Summer Repertory (Kismet, The Mikado) when she lived in Allentown, PA, and on several stages in Austin (State Theatre, Paramount) before being nominated for the B. Iden Payne award for supporting actress in 1996. In 1999, she founded Cabarageous with Donna Lipman, a cabaret act themed around friendship, which performed around Austin, notably the Zach Scott Cabaret Series.
