Don’t Miss Future Folk Sensations – Or The Chance To Be One
Each year the Winnipeg Folk Festival presents the Stingray Young Performers Program during the Festival weekend showcasing young talent from across Canada.
The program hosts upwards of 30 multi-talented youth musicians aged 14-24. Participants spend a day in sessions with mentors chosen from the Festival’s lineup, crafting and perfecting their songs and a second day performing on stage in front of a Folk Fest audience.
Countless talented artists have graced the Young Performers stage since its beginning in 2000 and many have gone on to perform as part of our Festival line-up and even on our Main Stage; artists such as Brandy Zdan, Cara Luft, Crooked Brothers, Daniel Champagne, Del Barber, Richard Inman and Sweet Alibi.
Who Can Apply?
Musicians aged 14 to 24 - singer/songwriters, instrumentalists, vocalists or bands. Returning participants welcome.
Program Dates July 8-10, 2020
