Dear ROOTSandBLUES Patrons,
It is with a heavy heart that today the Salmon Arm Folk Music Society will be announcing that the 2020 edition of the Salmon Arm ROOTSandBLUES Festival will not proceed in the traditional format. While we had remained hopeful that the healing powers of music and community would have the opportunity to prevail, for the safety of everyone involved, and in accordance with Provincial directives, we will not be able to proceed with the 2020 Festival as planned.
It can not be overstated just how much every festival goer, joining us from near and far, means to all of us as organizers, volunteers, and to the entire Shuswap community. The sincere enthusiasm and loyalty of our festival goers is the backbone of the ROOTSandBLUES Festival and because of that genuine pride and passion, we will return to our traditional Festival format in 2021 and we hope we will see you there!
Effective immediately ROOTSandBLUES is offering ticket holders the following options:
3. The opportunity to donate your ticket purchase to the Salmon Arm ROOTSandBLUES Festival, in support of future year's Festivals (tax receipts will be provided).
ROOTSandBLUES is currently exploring opportunities through which to share the joy, talent and authenticity of the ROOTSandBLUES Festival with a broader audience using a technology solution and alternate format in 2020. We commit to keeping you informed regarding alternate opportunities to enjoy ROOTSandBLUES as information becomes available in the coming weeks and months.
ROOTSandBLUES is built on a foundation of artistic passion and pride of community. These values will overcome, and we will sing, dance and celebrate together again.
Your ROOTSandBLUES Team
