We are honoured to be hosting the FIRST NIGHT of the Canadian Folk Music Awards here in St. John’s from April 3rd-7th. Join us at The Ship on April 3rd to celebrate the commencement of a week of some of Canada’s finest Folk with some local talents and our friends from the CFMA’s!

With phenomenal Jazz and Traditional intersections from Duane Andrews & the Hot Club of Conception Bay and upbeat Newfoundland songs from Kitchinparti, the music for this Folk-packed night is going to be top-tier!

Music starts at 9pm and there will be a $20 cover charge at the door.

With mesmerizing guitar and lyrics that echo everyday life, Thom Coombes has a talent for turning the mundane into heartfelt stories with a touch of comedy, and a whole lot of honesty. This Folk Night will have a sound that’s gentle and earnest, soothing to the folky soul!

Multi-talented singer/songwriter, Karla Pilgrim is a three-time MusicNL winner and ECMA nominee! Joined by Jackie Sullivan and Carole Bestvater – quite the powerful trio, folks!

Fresh off the CFMA stage as a host, the Dardanelle member and uber-talented musician Emilia Bartellas is taking her fiddle down to The Ship to lead our end-of-the-month session!

We’ve got a extra special folk’d up Folk Night for you here, folks! One of the most innovative acts to ever emerge from Newfoundland & Labrador, it’s Ouroboros!

This folk-funk-jazz band brings together infectious dance rhythms from around the world using the raw energy of saxes, vocals, and drums that will be sure to have you grooving!

End the month right with tunes at The Ship! This one’s hosted by Fergus Brown O’Byrne, and by’s, it’s gonna be a real time.

Composer and multi-instrumentalist musician Graham Lindsey will be bringing his energetic playing of mandolin, tenor banjo, and guitar to the Folk Night stage, joined by Carole Bestvater, Mike Mutrey, and Ryan Baker to amplify this tune-driving dynamic!

Just home from their Newfoundland tour, Ana & Eric bring a triple threat of folk, bossa nova, and Brazilian pop to the Folk Night stage!
