    In this online performance, Folk On The Rocks welcomes back 2019 festival favourite, Ginalina. With heartwarming tracks about friendship, nature and the importance of kindness, Ginalina is a musician that writes and sings for kids, and parents. With her acoustic guitar, and ukulele by her side, Ginalina is a feel-good performance where you can't help but sing along. Tracks like "I'm Brave" and "Small is Mighty" are the kinds of music we need for our first day of kindergarten, or the first day of the rest of our life.

    Based in BC, Ginalina has been a warm addition to festival lineups across Canada. She's a multiple Juno, and Canadian Folk Awards nominee, with four studio albums under her belt, and a book that's hitting shelves soon. Join us in celebrating kindness and community with Ginalina.

    Opening this performance is Yellowknife's own, Miranda Currie. Miranda Currie writes her music for the North's littlest adventurers, where she uses themes from the nature around here and her personal story of overcoming obstacles.

    Whether you've seen her on the Folk On The Rocks stage, or in the Snowcastle, Miranda Currie's music makes our feet and hearts dance together.




    FOTR would like to remind you that although this is an online show this still a safe space and we will be enforcing the same set of safety policies that we do on the festival grounds. If you need to review these policies they are listed under the FAQ section at www.folkontherocks.com or feel free to speak to an FOTR staffer.

    Folk On The Rocks: Update on COVID-19

    At the time of writing (March 12, 2020) Folk On The Rocks is scheduled to host our annual event, as planned from July 17-19, 2020. 
    Our staff and board members are carefully monitoring the situation related to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in Canada and the Northwest Territories. At this time, the risk to Northwest Territories residents is low, and our summer 2020 timeline means that a lot may happen between now and then.

    However, the health and safety of our patrons is a top priority, and we have taken steps to develop and implement a strategic plan for the 2020 festival, that further considers a course of action should the risk levels rise in our community.

    Until then, we are dedicated to keeping our community and patrons informed and up to date on festival activities, and advise that everyone take the following Health Canada recommended courses of action:

    • wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
    • sneeze and cough into your sleeve
    • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
    • avoid contact with people who are sick
    • stay home if you are sick

    For more information on COVID-19, and prevention tips, please visit Health Canada's website.
