COVID-19 has led the Calgary Folk Music Festival to take its 2020 edition online, and organizers have now detailed the digital program for their 41st edition.

Set to run July 23 through 26, the reimagined festival will feature digital programming that includes live-streamed concerts, archival footage and interviews.

Artists set to take part in this year's edition include William Prince, Lucy Dacus, Corb Lund, Patrick Watson, Lightning Dust, Bobby Bazini, Amythyst Kiah, Birds of Chicago, Vox Sambou, Sebastian Gaskin, Mexican Institute of Sound and more.

All digital fare will be available to stream at home and at local grassroots gatherings, while local radio stations CKUA and CJSW will also broadcast current and archival music, interviews and concerts. Those looking to bring the full festival experience to their homes can purchase a Backyard Festival Basket full of goodies from event partners and local businesses.

Further lineup, scheduling and ticketing details can be found through the Calgary Folk Music Festival's official website.
