SolarFest Showcase Finalists

Ten talented singer-songwriters earned a spot on the Arkell stage as part of our annual Songwriter Showcase competition. The top performer is invited back to perform as a featured musician at SolarFest in 2018.

Last year’s winner was Louise Morsie of Nashville, Tennessee. Past competitors have included Antje Duvekot, Ray LaMontagne, Gregory Douglass, and Jeffrey Foucault. Our panel of judges is drawn from professional musicians, public radio show hosts, and music columnists.


Lara Herscovitch, winner of the 2011 Singer-Songwriter Showcase says: SolarFest is a terrific, unique festival, set in an absolutely gorgeous landscape. It has such a great spirit and energy (no pun intended); I find such inspiration both from the music side as well as the green energy and environmental protection vision. It is an honor to play there and to have been selected out of such a talented group of singer-songwriters.”
