Thursday evening, Sweet Beaver Suite

Sweet Beaver Suite was the place to be to catch Canadians at the annual Folk Alliance International Conference, in Memphis this past February.

This private hotel room showcase presented of some of the great northern lights on the scene – with a few honourary Canadians thrown in for good measure.

Roots Music Canada is a proud sponsor of Sweet Beaver Suite. In this series of three posts we are pleased to put you on the scene, with intimate performance videos shot in the hotel room.

It’s the next best thing to being there – and you don’t need to stay up til 4 am to watch!
