Four Corners Folk Festival

If you missed our Virtual Four Corners Folk Festival on Friday night, or just loved it and want to experience it again - or share with others, you can watch and listen here

Please note the first 10 minutes is a "place holder" featuring footage from earlier times on Reservoir Hill, and 2 beautiful songs from our friend Darrell Scott. The event features wonderful performances from Michael Franti, Rising Appalachia, Tommy Emmanuel, Caitlin Cannon & Alice Wallace, and Stillhouse Junkies. Plus you'll be treated to gorgeous views of our festival site. Enjoy!

Dan Appenzeller, co-founder of Folkwest, the non-profit behind two of the region's most beloved music festivals, Four Corners Folk Festival and Pagosa Folk 'N Bluegrass, passed away on August 21, 2020 from cancer.

Four Corners Folk Festival Canceled Due to COVID-19

Jul 2, 2020

Sadly, but not surprisingly, we announce the cancellation of the 25th Annual Four Corners Folk Festival over Labor Day weekend. While we initially were hopeful, this decision is clearly unavoidable due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We're excited to announce that single day tickets and full lineups are now available for Pagosa Folk 'N Bluegrass and the Four Corners Folk Festival, still at early bird pricing.

KSUT is pleased to announce that Bank of the San Juans has signed as the 2020 Title Sponsor for live music events, including in-studio sessions, KSUT Presents Concerts, and Pagosa Festivals. 

This partnership will benefit KSUT's increased involvement and commitment to presenting live music in the Four Corners region, thanks to Bank of the San Juans generous support.
