Canada’s Prince Edward Island to be this year’s international partner

May 10th, 2017

Each year EFEx partners with one country or international territory which allows us to welcome our friends from outside England to perform alongside our showcasing English artists.  This year are partner will be the beautiful Prince Edward Island (PEI) on Canada’s east coast which is a vibrant source of roots artists.  We are delighted to announce that EFEx artistic programmer David Agnew, in collaboration with Music PEI, has selected the following PEI artists to showcase this year: The East Pointers, Vishtèn and Irish Mythen (see the artists section of this website for more details on the individual artists).  All will perform at shows also included in Manchester Folk Festival as well as the delegate-only PEI reception on Friday 20th October.  Music PEI will also receive a package of promotional opportunities across the EFEx 2017 event to ensure a high profile for music from PEI and the PEI showcasing artists.
