Folks, Roots Music Canada simply cannot exist without your support. So if you’re an artist or industry person who values having a place that reviews, premieres and features new Canadian folk, roots and world music — or if you’re a fan that appreciates having a place to discover it, please support us.

All you have to do is click HERE to head over to our Patreon site to sign up.

Did you know that if 1,200 people donated just $1 a month our site would be fully sustainable long-term? And did you know that at least 7,000 people read us every month?

Look, we it’s tempting to wait for someone else to help, but we’re a small, tight-knit community that runs on a shoestring. We don’t want you to stretch your finances to support us, but we are asking you to pledge an amount that’s sustainable to you. $1/month? $2/month?

Please sign up today! Also…

Gift patronage is here!

Next, email Gordy the Moose at gordy@rootsmusic.ca with the name, address, and email address of the person you are gifting the patronage to.

If your patronage level qualifies them for perks, he’ll send them their perks too.
