Calgary To Host the 2018 CFMA’s!
With a very successful 2017 awards weekend in Ottawa behind us, planning is now underway for the 2018 CFMA’s, to be held in Calgary over the weekend of December 1. We have had rave reviews of the new format whereby the awards are presented over two full nights of mostly musical performances by the nominees.
The CFMA Board of Directors is delighted to welcome a new member, Vic Close, of Calgary’s Fish Creek Concert Series, and looks forward to working with a strong local committee, drawn from the Calgary folk music community, to help organize the weekend’s events. Mark your calendar now and plan to join us for another exciting celebration of the best in Canadian folk music!
