The Flying Musicians Association, Inc. will land at the Quiet Valley Ranch in Texas for the Kerrville Folk Festival. Starting on Thursday, May 27, and continuing for 18 days (until June 13), the Festival will host performances by more than 100 singer songwriters and their bands. Interspersed between performances are workshops in songwriting, blues guitar, and harmonica.
The Flying Musicians are teaming up with the Kerrville Folk Festival to establish a new venue, providing a jamming and camping area at the ranch throughout the event. Primitive camping is available at the site, which features a main canopy/tent for refreshments, socializing, hangar chat and, of course, jamming.
Sponsor Mooney Airplane Co. is providing free parking on their ramp for association members, plus factory tours, hospitality, and shuttle service to the festival during business hours.
An RSVP is required to reserve a tiedown spot for the Fly-In MusicJam part of the Kerrville Folk Festival. Contact John@flyingmusicians.org for reservations. Purchase your Festival tickets prior to May 23 to receive a 15% discount.

The Flying Musicians Association, Inc. took off in 2009 by blending two passions: flying and music. The group was founded by two pilot/musicians, John Zapp and Aileen Hummel, who have made it their quest to encourage, promote, educate and support these two passions. The mission of the organization: “Pilot Musicians sharing their passion while encouraging and educating youth in the science and art of aeronautics and music.”
