This year’s MusicNL Week will be held in St. John’s Oct. 11 to 15, and it’s a special one, celebrating the provincial music industry association’s 25th anniversary.
“We are honoured to bring Alan on board as emcee for this very special event. Alan is one of Newfoundland’s most celebrated acts and his role as host will tie perfectly into our theme of honouring our legacy members,” said Glenda Tulk, MusicNL’s executive director, in a written statement.
MusicNL week will see a number of performances, workshops, panels and other events, as well as the attendance of 25 export buyers from around North America and Europe — brought in by MusicNL as part of a new export development program — who will work with local musicians to help prepare them for an international career.
“This year will be the biggest and most memorable MusicNL Week to date,” Tulk said.
Public showcases will happen at the convention centre, The Majestic and the Jag Hotel. A schedule and ticket information will be available in the coming weeks at www.musicnlweek.ca.
