WINTERFOLK XIX

Winterfolk Blues and Roots Festival was founded by Festival Director Brian Gladstone, and is a division of The Association of Artists for a Better World, a registered non-profit organization.

Statement from Brian Gladstone

For the first time, Winterfolk will not be live in-person. That said, the challenges the past year have presented all the more reason to celebrate the Festival’s 19th birthday. This year’s virtual celebration is affirming what we in Toronto have long-recognized: this city has an unwavering commitment to musical excellence and, especially in times like these, an equally great commitment to our communities.

Registration

Registration is needed to watch the event for free,  Please head over to winterfolk(dot)com.

Optional donations will be collected in support of the Daily Bread Foodbank.
