Canadian Folk Music Awards @folkawards

Fans of Canada's folk music scene that live in the Calgary area have a real treat coming up in November - the annual Canadian Folk Music Awards are being held here this year!

Unfortunately I had to miss the press conference that was held recently to announce the nominees, but the strong field of contenders this year can be viewed by clicking here.

That also redirects you to the Canadian Folk Music Awards main site, so you will have a wealth of information to read over, and hey - they are on Twitter, so follow along to stay informed!

Two days of showcases will be held at The Calgary Folk Club, and if you have not yet discovered this robust local gem, you really need to take the next few weeks to check that particular venue out, and confirm that you won't want to miss being there November 8th and 9th to support the talent that will be showcased.

It all wraps up November 10 at a big gala hosted by CBC's Shelagh Rogers, and musician Benoit Bourgue - those tickets (for the U of C University Theatre) are available by following this link...

You just can't go wrong planning to support this event and these artists - this will prove to be an amazing weekend of Canadian talent, no doubt in my mind...

Hey, you don't have to just trust me here - check out this recent Calgary Herald feature that followed the press conference, and decide for yourself.

Folk music really is where most music comes from - open yourself to what you may have been missing!
