Cabin Radio is hosting a weekend-long special broadcast on July 18-19, 2020 to mark what should have been Folk on the Rocks’ 40th anniversary.
The Yellowknife music festival had to cancel this year’s event due to the Covid-19 pandemic. A host of returning performers, from Tegan and Sara to Fred Penner, had been scheduled to appear.
Organizers hope at least some of those acts will instead make an appearance in 2021.
Folk on the Air dedicates the weekend of July 18 and 19 to celebrating Folk on the Rocks in an audio special, playing a range of full performances originally broadcast live by Cabin Radio in 2018 and 2019.
Tune in from 12pm daily on Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19 for a marathon festival broadcast bringing you all the atmosphere and fun of Folk.
And we’ll see you back at the Folk site next year for the real thing!
