August 16th – 18th, 2024

It was an amazing afternoon at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound.

Fate cruelly placed the finals on the first sunny hot day of the decade. A couple of hundred people showed up, however, to watch stunning performances by the 12 finalists in The Georgian Bay Folk Society’s Youth Discovery Showcases.

Our judges( Joel Leblanc, Liz Scott and Kevin Gangloff) had a lot to choose from.

Five performers will be joining us on stage at Summerfolk this year
