Singer/songwriter Livingston Taylor is heading the hunt for the folk music star of tomorrow. The 2nd Annual Apple & Eve Newport Folk Festival Talent Search gives an unknown folk singer/songwriter the opportunity to perform at one of the world’s largest and most recognized folk festivals. Five finalists will be selected from all entries with Taylor hosting a “sing-off” in Newport on Aug. 5, the day before the Newport Folk Festival begins. The winner will appear onstage at the festival, sharing a line-up with some of today’s greatest artists. Now through July 2, hopefuls should submit a VHS or DVD of a live performance of one or two original songs along with an official entry form.
