Junos 365 Songwriters’ Circle

Friday (June 12)

Facebook / Youtube / CBC Gem

It’s an event that traditionally takes place during the Junos weekend but with the pandemic this year, the Songwriters’ Circle that runs as part of the celebrations had to be cancelled. That doesn’t mean the music and stories stop. That’s why the Junos in partnership with CBC music has created an online performance featuring names like Ed Robertson, City and Colour, Buffy Sainte Marie and Sarah Harmer. The artists gather to play their music and tell the stories behind the songs. The shows happen online every second Friday.
