When the Canadian Folk Music Awards invade Winnipeg this month, the local music community will be ready to show off its roots. The sixth annual gala event makes its first trip to the Pantages Playhouse on November 20, bringing with it a weekend of exciting events and stellar talent. Folk Awards Weekend, which runs November 19-20 in various city venues and clubs, boasts nearly a dozen events.

There will be plenty of homegrown talent on stages throughout the weekend, including
The Magnificent 7's' TJ Blair hosting Open Mic at The Folk Exchange, and the Manitoba Music / Paquin Entertainment  showcase with Oh My Darling, Del Barber, and Wool on Wolves at Le Garage on November 19. The same night, roots/blues singer/songwriter JD Edwards joins Sweet Alibi and CFMA nominee The Once at Times Change(d).

We've got a new, yet-to-be-released JD Edwards track, "This House Will Stand," as the featured download in The Loudspeaker this week. Grab the track, check out the CFMA and Folk Awards Weekend schedule, and catch some some great live music.
