Toronto's Winterfolk IX festival – which runs from February 18 – 21, 2011, in various venues on the Danforth, will present a night of local entertainment as a teaser to the upcoming free, all-ages, mid-winter, weatherproof urban roots and blues festival. To add to this sneak preview, co-presenter and host Jim Priebe will also be organizing a local Stouffville artist showcase at the festival in February. Please stay tuned for more information and details on that in the coming weeks.

This preview concert will highlight some of the upcoming festival performers including singer-songwriter and Juno nominee Glen Marais, serio-comic folksingers Carol Teal & David Joyce, guitar virtuoso Ewan Dobson, vintage swing duo HOTCHA!, veteran singer-songwriter Marie-Lynn Hammond, and expert guitar-tamers Brian Gladstone (also the festival director) and Stouffville fave, Erwin Schack.
