The Canadian Folk Music Awards are headed online as the country weathers the impact of COVID-19.
A couple weeks after the folk music celebration was cancelled in reaction to the pandemic, the event’s organizers say they’ve chosen a different way to showcase the winners.
The awards will stream live on Facebook and the CFMA website on April 4th at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
The new format lands on the original date of the planned event in Charlottetown.
All 20 awards will be presented virtually on the webcast, as well as details on where the 2021 event will take place.
Organizers say other public concerts and celebrations tied to the folk awards remain cancelled.
