With more than 30 delegate buyers, FolkNorth’s export focus will shine the spotlight on the Canadian folk industry, foster new business collaborations and build opportunities for artists to tour internationally.
Balanced with the export outlook is an industry development stream with workshops and peer meetings designed to help foster best practices within the Canadian folk industry through international dialogue with world class presenters, agents, record labels and managers.
FolkNorth strives to be a small-scale, high-level, invitation-oriented event designed to offer the export-focused Canadian folk artist-entrepreneur and industry a place to expand their business reach with an event anchored in Canada. Deliberately designed to be ‘not another music conference’, the event places quality over quantity in its programming and professional development.
