Young Artist Program

Are you an aspiring young songwriter between the age of 15-24? Would like feedback on your songs, find new inspiration and improve your songwriting skills?  Join us for the second iteration of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival’s Young Artist Program, a songwriting intensive for young and aspiring singer/songwriters. The aim of the program is to give young artists the opportunity to learn from professional musicians.

This year’s mentors are Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs from Melbourne, Australia. Liv and Pepita are two of Australia’s brightest young talents, from the band, Oh Pep! The participants in the program will be able to draw from Oh Pep!’s experience in songwriting, life on the road and what it really means to be a professional musician.
