The festival is more than that though.
In keeping with its mandate to present the finest in Canadian music to the people of Greater Sudbury, two cold-weather concerts are coming up, thanks to the festival.
On Nov. 14, Black and the Rodeo Kings are playing with Harlan Pepper at the United Steelworkers Hall, then on Dec. 7, The Sheepdogs and Yukon Blonde share the stage at The Grand.
“NLFB is thrilled to present great music all year round, not just the annual festival,” said Paul Loewenberg, artistic director of the festival.
“It's activities like this that further NLFB's mandate to present first-rate artistic and cultural events in the region, while bringing us one step closer to being a highly active and viable organization throughout the year.”
Tickets to both shows are now available through www.nlfbsudbury.com. Stay tuned for additional show announcements.
