0

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) announced the nominees for the 2021 Juno Awards yesterday.

The 50th anniversary Juno telecast takes place this year on May 16, but it’s unclear when and how the winners of the untelevised categories will be unveiled.

Nonetheless, we are always happy to place them front and centre here on Roots Music Canada.

Here are the nominees in the folk, roots, blues, world, reggae and Indigenous categories.

Congratulations to everyone!
