Folk/roots fans in Vancouver are in for a marathon of great music this week as the Canadian Folk Music Awards get under way.
The festivities kick off tomorrow night with the Rogue Folk Club’s B.C. artists showcase and continue through the weekend with a traditional music concert on Friday night and a songwriters concert, film screening, family music concert and the two awards presentation concerts on the weekend.
