About Americana Project Students
Alumni of the Americana Project, the educational outreach program of Sisters Folk Festival, will perform at the Fir Street Park stage. The Americana Project has been in the Sisters Schools since 2000, and thousands of students have learned to play guitar, write songs, perform and record as well as be great community ambassadors for music and community engagement.
Former and current Sisters students will not only will perform, they provide sound engineering, venue management and share pertinent information about the Americana Project with patrons. SFF Americana Project alumni, many of whom are professional musicians, will perform alongside Festival artists Saturday of the Festival. This is a testament to the quality of programming SFF delivers in the Sisters schools and it’s deep, enduring commitment to music and arts education as a non-profit organization.
