Add the Canadian Folk Music Awards (CFMAs) to the growing list of events cancelled because of the coronavirus.


Organizers last night released a statement announcing the fact, as follows:

“The Canadian Folk Music Awards, in partnership with Music PEI, is very sad to announce the cancellation of the 15th Annual, scheduled for April 3rd & 4th in Charlottetown, P.E.I., due to growing concerns about COVID-19. 

“After considering carefully the advice of governments, public health authorities and medical experts, as well as consulting with the folk music community, we feel this is the best course of action as the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff and the general public is paramount and the rapidly changing course of the pandemic world-wide is difficult to predict.

“We will explore alternative ways to celebrate the remarkable achievements of this year’s nominees and recipients from the wonderful world of Canadian folk music in the days to come. We also want to thank everyone involved for their tireless work and generous support. Tickets purchased for this year’s CFMA events in Charlottetown are eligible for refunds. We will provide details of how to obtain refunds as soon as possible. Check our website for updates.

“Many airlines are currently offering free exchanges and/or cancellations for airline tickets through to the end of April, due to COVID-19. Please visit airline websites directly for the latest policies (AIR CANADA  / WESTJET). If you have made hotel reservations please be sure to contact the hotel to cancel.
