Folk on the Rocks added The Jerry Cans, Partner, and Campbell Woods to its 2020 lineup as organizers admitted they were “leaning on hope” for the festival to go ahead.
Yellowknife’s annual music festival is scheduled to celebrate its 40th anniversary from July 17-19. As of Thursday, it has “not received direction from public health officials” regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, a news release stated.
The 40th birthday was already set to feature artists like Tegan and Sara, Joel Plaskett, Fred Penner, Donovan Woods, and Digawolf – many returning headliners from festivals past.
On Thursday, making a third and final lineup reveal live on Cabin Radio, festival executive director Carly Bradley added The Jerry Cans alongside recent Folk hits Partner.
Also set to attend are Campbell Woods, Queer Songbook Orchestra, and DJ NDN of Tribe Called Red.
