Searchlight - The hunt For Canada's Best New Artist

Polls are open in the first round of Searchlight voting. You can head to the Searchlight homepage, start up the player and browse, or search by name, region or genre. You can vote for 10 songs per region per day. That means artists can help support other artists without hurting your chances of advancing. In fact, working together will help artists advance (and it's a great way to meet other bands around the country).

Polls for this round close on Monday, April 13, at 2:59 p.m. ET. The acts that make it to the next round will be announced on the radio and online the following afternoon (Tuesday, April 14), so make sure you tune in to your afternoon CBC Radio One program (they'll be playing Searchlight music throughout the competition, so tune in and feel free to reach out to them on Twitter).

Voting is open to anybody, anywhere, and we hope fans from all over the world will discover the music entered in Searchlight.

Camrose Songbook Sunday - Historic Bailey Theatre


April 12 (2:00 - 4:00 p.m.)
Free Admission
(Donations to the Bailey Theatre)

The monthly Songbook Sunday matinee is hosted by local artist Leslie Lindballe, but anyone is welcome to come and play on one of the finest stages in Alberta. Of course audiences are welcome at this family event.

The program will start by exploring the foundation of Folk music - participation - with everyone welcome to grab a songbook and sing or play along. Solo acts or groups are then welcome to showcase their own strengths in an open mic format. Finally, an all-inclusive jam will fill the stage with talent. The goal here is to provide Camrose musicians with a place to come and share themselves and their work, in hopes of generating connection through song. Come out and experience the deep joy of participatory music.
