For a minimum of 8 hours of service over the Winterfolk weekend, I will receive an expense allowance, a weekend all access pass allowing admittance to all venues, an invitation to private party with the artists and media, and the great experience of working within the local roots community. By submitting this form, I agree to show up when I promise, on-time, and work for the agreed hours.If for some reason I am unable to meet my commitment, I will call in advance to advise. Winterfolk cannot guaranty where you will be assigned, and will do our best to accommodate preferences, but ultimately placement will be where needed most. (emergency no. to be advised)

Thanks for your application. I will contact you in the near future. Vicki
