SHINE is an annual event (est. 2010) that raises money for young, aspiring Canadian musicians who can use financial help getting started. Over the last ten years, over $75,000 has been awarded.
With things coming up on Sunday (March 7), there’s a difficult issue. Next year’s bursaries are funded by the sales of tickets to the event. With COVID, there will be no in-person concert. That means they have to take things virtual in 2021. Here are the details:
Performers: GR Gritt (Juno Award winner), Julian Tayler (nominee for two Canadian Folk Music Awards), Emily Burgess of The Emburys (winners of the Best New Group Maple Blues Award in 2019), and Michelle Rumball, formerly of Grievous Angels.
When: Sunday, March 7 at 7:30 ET
Tickets: Eventbrite for $25.
If you’re a young musician and you’d like to apply for a bursary, go here.
