The 2015 Mariposa Folk Festival Showcase Winners Are…….


This afternoon at the Aladdin Banquet Hall in Orillia the Mariposa Folk Festival Showcase auditions took place, nine emerging artists performed trying to win a spot on this years bill; but in the end only three were chosen….they were Turbo Street Funk, the funkiest busking band in Canada, Kunle, a Nigerian singer/songwriter, brings together his unique guitar tapping, harmonica, talking drum, traditional and contemporary songs and rich vocals to take audiences into what he terms ‘music with no boundaries’ and The Barrel Boys, old school Bluegrass that gets better the faster it gets.

All of the artists that performed this afternoon were awesome and all deserve a spot on the Festival’s schedule, maybe next year.

This years Mariposa Folk Festival takes place on July the 3rd, 4th and 5th; get your tickets HERE.

Below are some photos of the finalists from this afternoon plus a video we shot of Turbo Street funk.
