Emma James, Olivia Martin and Laura Rabell were 2016’s winners of Tosco Music‘s scholarships to The Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson College.

“If I could use three words to describe my time at the Swannanoa Gathering, they would be eye-opening, impactful, and unforgettable. The teachers were incredibly supportive and I gained an invaluable amount of knowledge. I learned more about myself and expanded my horizons as a musician through other artists’ helpful critiques and perspectives. I am forever thankful to John Tosco and Tosco Music Parties for giving me this experience of a lifetime.”
