We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a sponsored showcase at the annual Folk Music Ontario conference which runs from 19 - 22 October 2017 in Mississauga. This is an excellent opportunity to get in front of music presenters from across Ontario and beyond. For more information on the conference please visit:

To apply for the showcase please complete the following form:  

The deadline to apply is 15 September 2017 and the three successful applicants will be informed by 20 September 2017. Applications will be judged on their artistic merit by a jury of three peers (artists) from outside of Ottawa who will be announced at the same time as the successful applicants.

Each successful applicant will receive:

  • One delegate pass (per artist/band)
  • $200 performance fee

Applicants will be expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements. Bands will be required to purchase conference registration for additional members as all participants in the showcase must be conference attendees (daily rates available). Please keep this in mind when applying.
