Toronto’s Winterfolk X festival – which runs from February 17 – 19, 2012, at a brand new location, The Delta Chelsea Hotel in downtown Toronto – will present a night of local entertainment as a teaser to the upcoming free, all-ages, mid-winter, weatherproof urban blues and roots 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 veteran singer-songwriter Marie-Lynn Hammond, Grainne (originally from the area and now in Peterborough), sultry Latin songstress Laura Fernandez, vintage swing duo HOTCHA!, and expert guitar-pickers Erwin Schack  as well as The Guitar Boys of Alderon plus more!
