folkus has a mandate to promote Canadian talent, with an emphasis on the local for opening acts. We present roots-based acts, but the definition of roots is broad. Our concerts are held on 4 Saturday evenings between January and April (when there are no festivals for our starving artists to play).
The lineup for 2017 features:
Garnet Rogers, January 21, 2017
Coco Love Alcorn, February 25, 2017
w s/g Chris MacLean
The Ragged Flowers, March 25, 2017

Scott Merritt, April 22, 2017

folkus concerts are a rare chance to see bands up close and hear them as they’re meant to be heard. The series is a not-for profit haven for Canadian artists in colder months. Tickets and details at www.folkusalmonte.com Doors open at 7:30, show time is 8:00. The welcome is warm, the beer (local) is cold, it’s worth the drive to Almonte!
