Kate Wolf Memorial Award

World Folk Music Association

The following text is from the 1995 WFMA's annual benefit concert program.

      Kate Wolf was never a pop star, never had a hit, and more than eight years following her death from leukemia, her music has spread mostly by word-of-mouth. But as her many fans have known, since they first heard her voice, her heartfelt, seemingly simple songs have the power to change lives. "She sang of the awareness of being," as one reviewer put it.

      This award was established at the Second Annual WFMA Benefit Concert in February, 1987 and is awarded annually to the performer who best epitomizes the music and spirit of the late California singer-songwriter.

      Because Kate and her music made a significant difference in people's lives, and because of her influence on other performers, the World Folk Music Association is proud to be the vehicle through which her presence will always be with us. The singer-songwriter chosen for the Kate Wolf Award receives a grant, a plaque and an invitation to perform at the annual WFMA Concert. Selection of the honoree is made by a committee consisting of Kate's fellow performers and friends. Previous recipients are Utah Phillips, Christine Lavin, Rosalie Sorrels, Robin Batteau, Wavy Gravy (Hugh Romney), Peter Yarrow.

The 1995 recipient was Crow Johnson
The 1996 recipient was Nanci Griffith
The 1997 recipient was Jack Hardy
The 1998 recipient was
Tom Chapin
The 1999 recipient was David Buskin
