CBC and the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) are turning Junos 365 Songwriters’ Circle into a digital event that will be streamed on CBC Gem.
The reason for this change, of course, is due to the cancellation of the Junos ceremony and all associated programming in March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Junos 365 Songwriters’ Circle will showcase some of Canada’s best songwriters as they tell the stories behind their songs and perform from home. The first episode, taking place on Friday, May 1st at 8pm ET, will feature Juno Award winner Brett Kissel and Juno Award nominees Dominique Fils-Aimé, Kaia Kater, and Devon Portielje from Half Moon Run.
The remaining four episodes will release every other week on Fridays until June 26th. More information on the Junos 365 Songwriters’ Circle can be found here.
