Check out our MooseFest playlist! Roots Music Canada’s 5th anniversary bash happens Sunday
Roots Music Canada is five years old this year, and we’re celebrating on Sunday night with an anniversary bash at the Toronto’s Tranzac.
We’re calling it MooseFest: celebrating 5 years of Roots Music Canada, and it’s special in a whole bunch of ways.
First, it’s being hosted by the ORIGINAL founders of Roots Music Canada, Andy Frank and David Newland, the guys who first launched this site on Gordon Lightfoot’s birthday in 2009. (Keep an eye on this site on Friday for a special feature on them).
Secondly, it features an incredible line-up of talent from beloved veterans of the folk community like David, Tannis Slimmon and Lewis Melville to exciting new discoveries like Kunlé and current contempoary folk favourites like Tragedy Ann.
So will So Long Seven, featuring iconic Toronto tabla player Ravi Niampally.
And finally, we’ll close the show with the Memberz, the fantastic, uplifting reggae band featuring Roots Music Canada’s own Paul Corby.
If you haven’t heard some or all of these performers, we’ve made a Spotify playlist to introduce you. So next time you have a half hour to put some music on, have a listen and enjoy!
And then make sure you reserve your tickets to MooseFest: Celebrating 5 years of Roots Music Canada, this Sunday night at 7 p.m. at the Tranzac, 292 Brunswick, Toronto.
We can’t wait to see you!
