Hillside Inside 2017
February 9 - 12
“Doris Folkens paints songs with the careful detail of an artist capturing deep feelings and profound narratives,” believes professional songwriter, Keppie Coutts. Doris forged her talent in childhood on the family piano and later expanded to guitar and professional songwriting. In British Columbia, Doris was a regular contributor at the Revelstoke Coffee House, Summer Street Festival, and Snowflake Wine Festival.
Doris currently lives in Guelph, Ontario and has a Professional Singer/Songwriter Certificate from Berklee College of Music. She teaches songwriting for Hillside Festival’s “Girls and Guitars” and in 2016, she was “Artist-on-Board” for VIA Rail. She is thrilled to be working on her first EP.
