TORONTO – MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 – The Winterfolk Blues & Roots Festival returns once again to Toronto’s DELTA CHELSEA HOTEL for the upcoming ELEVENTH ANNUAL WINTERFOLK FESTIVAL which will take place from FEB 14-17, 2013. Some of the finest folk, roots, world and blues artists will perform at the Delta Chelsea’s Monarchs Pub, Market Garden Stage and various other stages all within the hotel. For more information and updates please visit www.winterfolk.com

Toronto’s Winterfolk X festival will present a fun, jam-packed, free, all-ages, mid-winter, weatherproof urban blues and roots festival. The new venue proved to be a huge success last year and will continue to present all kinds of fresh opportunities. The Delta’s management and staff are thoroughly supportive and excited about the recent collaboration. The hotel’s involvement in Toronto’s music scene is ever-growing and they have regular music events scheduled every night of the week in Monarchs Pub, so many in the music community are already familiar with the great vibe happening there.

Stay tuned for more updates in the upcoming weeks when the festival will announce the artists, the stages and the workshops being presented.

Winterfolk was formed to entertain, educate, enlighten, engage and encourage the community about various folk music styles including roots, blues, folk and more. Founded by Festival Director Brian Gladstone, it is run as a division of The Association of Artists for a Better World, a registered non-profit organization in the Province of Ontario, Canada. www.abetterworld.ca

We’re always looking for good volunteers to help out. For eight hours of service over the Winterfolk weekend, volunteers receive access to all shows and artist hospitality lounge, including an invitation to a private party with the artists and more!
