Taking over Saskatoon for two full nights to celebrate the best live music Canada has to offer, JUNOfest has announced the first list of performers set to take the Saskatchewan city.
JUNOfest will feature over 50 artists in over 10 venues performing for fans, media, and the music industry, on Friday, March 13th and Saturday, March 14. This year’s festival will also include the JUNOfest Jazz Showcase and the Classical showcase, both presented by CBC Music.
Performers for JUNOfest include Blue Rodeo legend, Jim Cuddy, psychedelic folk-rockers, Lee Harvey Osmond, alt-country favourite, Justin Rutledge, and rock-and-roll power couple, Whitehorse. More performers will be announced as JUNOfest draws closer.
JUNOfest passes offer priority access to all venues over the two nights (subject to capacity). Passes are $30 each (plus tax and fees) and are on sale now at ticketweb.ca.
Performers announced for JUNOfest:
Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
