Borealis Records

Borealis Records made a commitment to recording Canadian artists who fit inside the broadly-defined folk tradition, and they have succeeded handsomely in that endeavour. Recently, Bill Garrett of Borealis Records stepped up to the plate to organize a benefit for the Ottawa Folklore Centre, which has found itself in financial difficulties. The benefit is next Thursday, July 31, at 7:30 pm and response has been so positive that the venue has been changed in order to accommodate a bigger crowd. Originally planned for the Sunnyside Wesleyan Church, it has been moved to the larger Southminster United Church on Bank Street at Alymer. Tickets are $25, available at the Ottawa Folklore Centre. This benefit is a great example of artists helping other artists. What goes around, comes around. Today's show salutes Bill Garrett of Borealis Records for his efforts on behalf of the Ottawa Folklore Centre, featuring a few of the many artists found on the Borealis label.
