Position: Artistic Director
Company: Mariposa Folk Festival - Orillia, ON, Canada
Since 2018, Liz Scott has been the Artistic Director of Canada's Mariposa Folk Festival, held each July in Orillia, Ontario. Former AD at Eaglewood Folk Festival, Fred Eaglesmith's Picnic, and Village Vibes at Blue Mountain, Liz has been hosting a concert series in her home for over 20 years. She continues to assist a certain peripatetic folksinger with his Canadian gigs, and has also partnered with several other independent Canadian musicians, building and promoting their shows at small halls, legions and theatres across Ontario. From scratch, grassroots style. Like so many, Liz wears many hats. The 2022 Mariposa Folk Festival takes place July 8 - 10.
