The Canadian Folk Music Awards

The 12th annual Canadian Folk Music Awards Gala take place on December 3, Saturday, at the Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto. The mission of the Canadian Folk Music Awards is to celebrate & promote Canadian Folk Music in all its forms. Until their creation in 2005, there existed no awards to celebrate the breadth & depth of folk music in Canada. Awards such as the Junos, East Coast Music Awards, or the Western Canada Music Awards have a few categories that apply to folk & roots music, but they offer only a restricted view of the genre. The judging process is similar to that of the two-stage elimination model used by the Junos via a randomly selected jury drawn from our community. Our Gala this year will be co-hosted by two artists, Benoit Bourque of La Bottine Souriante & Jean Hewson from St. John's. NOMINEE SHOWCASES: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2nd, 8:00 P.M.
