Emerging Artist Contest Winners

Thank you to everyone who came out to an exciting afternoon of live, original music at Victorian Station on Sunday, March 19.

All ten finalists are all winners in our book, having beat out other artists to be at yesterday’s competition.

The music was wonderful and the Emerging Artist Contest has once again proven to be popular with many.
