Following up last month's inaugural "Long Winter TV" edition, this weekend's event will take place virtually through Long Winter's YouTube and Facebook, with musical performances by Lydia Persaud, Poolblood, Thom Gill and Gay Hollywood, as well as visual art from Henri Fabergé, Janet Swinburne, Sarah Boo, Orange Pieces Collective, and Matt Beckett & Maria Bui.
