Connecticut State Troubadour

The Connecticut State Troubadour is an honorary position, established in 1991 by the Connecticut General Assembly. The State Troubadour functions as an ambassador of music and song to encourage cultural literacy and promote the State of Connecticut.[1] It was at some points an annual position, but is since 1999 a two-year appointment;[2] as of 2005 it carries a $5,000 total stipend. The responsibilities of the position include performing at least three events at the request of the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism, promoting the state in song, and serving on panels to select future state troubadours.[3]
