Folk North Program



Presented by Folk Music Ontario, Folk Music Canada and Folk Alliance International, the 2019 Folk North Program (formerly known as the Export Development Program) assists folk musicians and businesses in accessing new markets in Canada, USA, UK and Australia and more markets by bringing more than 20 delegates (festival ADs, presenters, agents, music supervisors, etc.) to the Folk Music Ontario conference.

Folk North delegates are matched with more than 50 participating artists for one-on-one meetings, mentoring and networking receptions.
