Alexandra Stréliski, Allison Russell, and Aysanabee to Honour Canadian Legends at 2024 Juno Awards

The artists will pay tribute to three Canadian legends we lost last year — Karl Tremblay, Gordon Lightfoot and Robbie Robertson — at the televised Juno Awards on Mar. 24 in Halifax. Jeremy Dutcher and Elisapie will also perform, joining previously announced acts like Charlotte Cardin, The Beaches and Karan Aujla.

The Juno Awards have announced the final performers at next month's awards ceremony in Halifax, including special tribute performances that will honour Canadian legends who passed last year.

Contemporary classical pianist Alexandra Stréliski, Americana artist — and newly-minted Grammy winner — Allison Russell and singer-songwriter Aysanabee will honour three influential artists in a special joint performance: Les Cowboy Fringant's Karl Tremblay, folk-country star Gordon Lightfoot and The Band guitarist and Martin Scorsese collaborator Robbie Robertson.
