FAQ
Q: What sort of performers and styles of music are you looking for?
A: Mennofolk is calling for performers with a connection/affiliation to Mennonite/Anabaptist identity. The Mennofolk website (www.mennofolk.org) puts it this way: “Mennofolk is not just for Mennonites, but it is from Mennonites - a gallery of delightful sounds and sights to be offered to the world, which come out of our collective experience of faith, music, and Anabaptist values.” We are looking for a diversity of musical styles, but as suggested by the “folk” in “Mennofolk,” there is an emphasis/focus on “folk” and acoustic styles.

Q: Are you looking for all original music, or are cover songs ok too?
A: Except in the case of ‘traditional’ musicians who represent certain kinds of ‘roots music,’ we are looking for original music, not covers (unless you are covering a Mennonite songwriter). Priority will also be given to those who participate in the “Songs of Place” project.

Q: If I am chosen to perform at Mennofolk, will there be an honorarium?
A: Mennofolk 2014 should be considered a volunteer gig. We are hoping to have some budget available for modest travel subsidies for some performers coming from a significant distance. Priority will be given to performers who are also participating in the “Songs of Place” project.
