NOTE: BarrieFolk isn’t hosting a youth songwriter showcase this year. Please watch this space for details on future showcases.

Thanks to the songwriters of B.A.D.A.S/s (Barrie and District Association of Singer/Songwriters) for their support of past showcases with mentorship.

Here’s what two of our former youth participants had to say about the showcase:

“Being inspired by peers and mentors at the BarrieFolk Youth Songwriters’ Showcase and mentoring sessions was invigorating, not only that day but also since then. The community we were brought into has sustained their support in both tangibly and in an unspoken way. Open-mindedness and willingness to learn from each other was, and is, very important to me. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to grow together!”
