WINTERFOLK: It has certainly been a miserable winter to date, but Toronto folk and roots music fans will be warmed by the return of this popular and mostly free festival. Now in its ninth year, it runs from Feb. 18 to 20, and is held in six venues all in close proximity in the Danforth and Broadview area (Black Swan Tavern, Mambo Lounge, Eastminster United Church, Danforth Café, Dora Keogh, and Terry O’s Sports Bar. It’s a real talent-heavy list of performers this year, and those artists we can heartily recommend include BROCK ZEMAN, LAURA FERNANDEZ, DAVID ESSIG, TONY QUARRINGTON, BETH ANN COLE, HOTCHA!, DAVID CELIA AND JOAN BESEN, FREEMAN DRE AND THE KITCHEN PARTY, NOAH ZACHARIN, JAMES GORDON, ace blues guitarist JIMMY BOWSKILL, THE WARPED 45s, JACK MARKS, ROSEMARY PHELAN, THE MINOTAURS, BIG RUDE JAKE, JACK MARKS, MOSE SCARLETT, and ERIN HILL. A visiting artist from Montreal we’ve heard good things about is singer/songwriter JON DAVIS, who has drawn JAMES TAYLOR comparisons. For a full lineup, go to www.winterfolk.ca
