Submissions for Slaight Music Unsung Hero is now open for 2022 Canadian Folk Music Awards

The 2022 Canadian Folk Music Awards are scheduled to take place from April 1 through 3 in Charlottetown, PEI.  In the year leading up to the event, CFMA are now accepting submissions for the Slaight Music Unsung Hero Award.

The Slaight Music Unsung Hero Award is an annual award recognizing the contribution of an individual, group, or organization active in any aspect of the Canadian folk music scene.  It is meant to recognize those not generally recognized as a high profile individual, group, or organization, but who work tirelessly behind the scenes for the love of the music and who have not been recognized for their contributions by national or international music entities and includes submissions from volunteers in all their diversity who, year after year, lend support to folk performance spaces.

The application deadline for the Slaight Music Unsung Hero Award is August 31, 2021. All submissions are adjudicated by members of the CFMA Board of Directors, who will select a recipient from the eligible submitted candidates. To nominate an individual for the award, or to submit music for any of the 19 categories, please be sure to visit
