8th Kerrville Folk Festival Staff Kerrleaders (remembered):
Security - Bill Moss17
"This was my first festival. I was there only 3 days and at first I didn't know if we'd get in, but we did and got assigned to the Nightime Whiskey Barrel watch. "I don't know how long this had been going on, but the staff benefits that year were, a t-shirt for every day you worked, a breakfast ticket, a guest and all the beer you can drink. The breakfast ticket worked at the booth in the theatre. You could get a nice standard American breakfast there.
"I was on Tickets. We got $8 a day, all the beer/soda you could drink, breakfast from Jimmy Mesley's booth, t-shirt every day, free staff guest, free camping, free parking, free hot showers."
A co-worker, surveyor Craig Crosby Cregar, brought me and my wife in 1979. We camped in the state park and commuted each evening in the back of a pickup truck. I havenít missed a Big Folk since!The 8 Great Hours concept was revived and expanded to 12 Great Hours. And for the first of many tours, Kerrville on the Road was born and took artists that played the Folk Festival and played at various clubs around Texas. 17interviews 18interview with Ky Hote 19interview with Carolyn Norulak
