Prince George Folkfest Society (the people who bring you Coldsnap – the Prince George winter music festival) hope everyone is having a healthy, happy, holiday season.
The safety of the artists, production crew, staff and volunteers remains the top priority as organizers organize the 2021 festival. They are still keeping a close eye on all provincial health orders and are continuously updating safety protocols.
The Coldsnap production team is formulating a plan to present an amazing live-to-livestream festival on their website, and the lineup has now been announced at www.coldsnapfestival.com.
Visit the website and follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @coldsnapfest for updates. There will be no cover charge to view these performances, thanks to the generosity of some wonderful funders and sponsors.
The Coldsnap elves have been hard at work assembling an amazing roster of artists that will perform live in Prince George from January 29 to February 6, 2021. They will present two artists per night, starting at 7:30 p.m., while the Coldsnap for Kids concert on Sunday, January 31 will start at 1 p.m. The performers are so excited to be able to play, and the roster includes the likes of Kym Gouchie, Maureen Washington, Blue Moon Marquee, Pharis and Jason Romero, and Smithers’s adopted son Alex Cuba. In addition to nine nights of exceptional evening entertainment, Coldsnap will also present a series of instructional daytime workshops that will focus on the magic of making music, details of which will be released soon.
“This has been a rough year for everyone and we are excited to bring the music that we love directly into our audience’s homes where everyone can feel a little safer,” said Sue Judge, artistic director. “Livestreaming is very new for us but we are excited to have a great team in Russell AV helping us create a wonderful experience. We are very grateful that we live, work and play on the unceded, traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation. We salute, cheer, celebrate and give many thanks and virtual hugs to all our first responders, medical personnel and all other essential workers that continue to work so hard towards the safety of everyone in the community.”
