After unfortunately being cancelled last year, Salmon Arm, BC's ROOTSandBLUES festival is back and better than ever for 2024. From July 26 to 28, an all-star lineup of Canadian and international musicians are on deck to perform at the 32nd edition of the festival — including Sarah McLachlan, who, if you'll remember, had been set to lead the 2023 iteration.

“So many people, me included, were looking forward to hearing Sarah McLachlan’s iconic songs ring through Salmon Arm last summer. We’re thrilled that she and so many other incredible artists from across the world are able to come back this year,” Salmon Arm Folk Music Society Artistic Director Kevin Tobin said in a statement. “There will be more artists, workshops and family activities announced in the coming weeks, including the return of our Indigenous artist highlight on the Plulk’w Place stage. With this incredible lineup and more on the horizon, this is shaping up to be a great summer for music in Salmon Arm.”

Alongside McLachlan, the no-longer-touring Lido Pimienta will also take the stage, as well as Amanda Marshall, Five Alarm Funk, TEKE::TEKE, Begonia, Aysanabee, DJ Shub, Tanika Charles, Crystal Shawanda, Stephen Fearing, Blue Moon Marquee, Brandon Isaak, Moontricks, the Hello Darlins and more.
