Peterborough will host auditions next month for a chance to perform in a Toronto roots and blues festival. The Winterfolk VIII Roots and Blues Festival is set to run Feb. 12 to 15 in Toronto and organizers are holding auditions across Ontario this winter. Interested Peterborough musicians get a chance to audition at The Spill Café on Nov. 11 from 9 p. m. to midnight, a press release states. There is no cost to audition and two artists will be hired at each venue — based on audience voting and a festival jury, the release states. Artists who want to audition should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and advise preferred venue, include an EPK, or send a link to website or myspace, etc. Artists will then be updated with the details, and confirmed prior to the audition, the release states. Roughly 80 artists who have submitted will prepare two songs each, to present on the night. Winners of the festival spots will be announced at the end of each event, the release states.
