What festivalgoers can expect at CityFolk

While it seemed unlikely just a few months ago, Ottawa will actually be hosting live music festivals in 2021, starting with this weekend’s CityFolk. This somewhat abbreviated edition will feature a single stage over three evenings, and while it may not have similar quantity to previous years, it certainly is bringing headline quality performers.
