Mariposa Showcase Auditions

auditions in front of judges and a live audience


Mariposa Folk Festival has a proud reputation of discovering and launching new talent. One important way we do this is through our annual Mariposa Showcase for up-and-coming and under-recognized performers.

The eight ‘acts’ that participated in the 2017 Mariposa Showcase auditions on April 30th all brought their ‘A game’, and it showed.  Any one of them would have been a welcome addition to the Mariposa lineup. At the end of the day, though, only three festival slots were available, and we had to do the difficult job of winnowing the list down to three finalists:

Congratulations to:

Mayfly’s Landing
Captain Cowboy and the Moneymaker
The Bombadils

See you at Mariposa Folk Festival July 7-9, 2017!
