The Stan Rogers Folk Festival, now in its thirteenth year, is an international songwriter's festival. Annually more than 50 artists/groups from throughout the world are presented in an exciting seven stage format. The festival takes place in Canso, Nova Scotia, a small coastal fishing Community on Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore. This year’s festival will be held July 3 – July 5.

As a songwriter's festival, they present a diverse group of artists from a range of genres including folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, jazz, world etc. They have presented many heavy hitters like Guy Clark, Eric Bogle, Bruce Cockburn, Richie Havens and many others – as well as many exciting emerging artists. They pride themselves on exposing new artists to our audience. "They present the best music you've never heard".

This is a great opportunity to perform at one of Nova Scotia's premier music festivals. Compensation for selected artists is negotiated upon selection.
