This year’s Polaris Music Prize was filled with amazing talent and great performances.
This time last year, I was at home watching the performances roll out on livestream wishing I could be there to see the acts live. This year, I was. I feel grateful and proud to have been able to go and be a part of the audience and get to support Canadian talent and give these artists the attention they deserve. Also, a special thanks to Kathleen Edwards and Shad who did a spectacular job at entertaining the crowd; it is events like Polaris that really show how we differ from our American counterparts.
Check out some of my bad Instagram photos.
Here are some of the acts that I thought were noteworthy and worth watching again (Full video below):
