The tenth annual edition of Toronto’s Winterfolk Festival is now just over two months away and no doubt Brian Gladstone and the volunteer team from the Artists For A Better World non-profit organization which stages it have a superlative lineup in store for the Feb. 17-19 weekend.
As always the bill will include artists from Folk-related genres as diverse as Country, Celtic, Blues, and Jazz and tonight you can get a taste of what will be offered with a preview show at the cozy and very music-friendly Moonshine Café in Oakville (137 Kerr St.). The 8:30 p.m. show is also a fundraiser with a $10 cover that will be used exclusively towards paying artists at the festival.
