“As spring rears its head out of the snow in our home province of Quebec – the 12th Shigawake Music Festival looks to celebrate this welcomed season with our vibrant music scene. The festival did not take place in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but what we did do in the summer of 2020 was film Quebec-based musicians in several locations throughout Shigawake (the hometown of the festival). In February 2021 we recorded musicians in Montreal at the legendary studio hotel2tango. All of these recordings have been put together to present to you an online festival. It was not easy to adapt, but we tried our best. All of this in hopes that we have found a way to offer an experience (like never before) that inspires curiosity, and provides comfort.
This past year helped us reflect on diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. Shigawake Music Festival will continue to seek to do more to support and celebrate underrepresented communities. Each of the artists on the line-up signifies something special, unique – a facet of the human experience.
All of this will go live on the festival site on March 26 & 27, we will present all of these musicians combined – one song each. And all of April, we will release the full sessions of each artist.”
