Winfield winners list posted

Walnut Valley Festival, WinfieldThe list of winners from the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS has been posted on the festival’s web site, but finding them is a tiny bit counterintuitive. Once you get to their site, click on “Contests” in the sidebar, then on “Contest Archives,” and then on “2006.” The link for “Recent Winners” displays 2005 results.

Walnut Valley hosts one of the most prestigious music competitions in bluegrass and acoustic string music, so much so that simply using the term, “Winfield,” conveys as much as the official name of the event.

Each year in mid-September, they host competitions for flatpick and finger style guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, autoharp, plus mountain and hammered dulcimer.
