With the recent provincial announcement about concert venues, it looks as though we can indeed hold a series this winter. And we are so glad to be back!
It’s been a minute, as the kids say. After shutting down partway through our last season and missing a full year, it’s been over 600 days since Folkus held a concert or even a sound check indoors. We miss you, and we miss having live concerts.
It will be still Folkus, but things will necessarily be a little different.
Tickets will be sold through our new ticketing partner, Tickets Please. This will allow us to meet regulations. Tickets will be limited to 150 per show, again per regulations, and everyone attending must show proof of vaccination at the door, no exceptions. Masks will also be a factor; please don’t leave yours at home. As things stand, we will not be serving beverages at our concerts this year. This may change, but safety is a moving target.
Our lineup this year is a bit like a wedding: something old, something new … something blue. And just like a wedding, we’re sending you a Save the Date notice! We’ll be bringing back some of the artists who couldn’t play for us in our last season, and livening up a our lineup with a few new artists as well. We’re eager to let you know about our lineup, and we’ll be revealing all the details December 1st on our website and social media. Our 2022 dates are:
- January 29, 2022
- February 26, 2022
- March 26, 2022
- April 30, 2022
PS: Because our sponsors also took a hit during COVID, we’re extending the support they gave us to free advertising this year. Please show them some love.
