The Goderich Celtic Roots Festival, North America’s longest-running pan-Celtic event, is offering the opportunity for qualified emerging artists to participate in a virtual showcase at this year’s festival, to earn a spot to perform live on stage at next year’s festival.
The program has two phases: a virtual phase and a showcase phase. A panel of judges will select a shortlist of 10 artists who will be presented in virtual format during this year’s festival, August 6-8, 2021. An audience poll will determine the top two artists who will go on to receive a year of artist development workshops and mentorship before appearing onstage in Goderich at next year’s festival.
The submission deadline is June 4, 2021
