Three-time Juno Award winner Lights and CBC q's Tom Power will host this year's Juno Songwriters' Circle event taking place on Sunday, March 15, at Saskatoon's Sid Buckwold Theatre at TCU Place.

The annual event is a Juno Week highlight: an afternoon concert where some of Canada's finest songwriters share their songs and stories in support of MusiCounts. The Songwriters' Circle will be broadcast live on CBC Radio One, CBC Music and live streamed via CBC Gem and cbcmusic.ca/junos

Performing at this year's Songwriters' Circle will be an array of Juno-nominated acts: 

  • Aaron Goodvin
  • Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine
  • Nuela Charles
  • Tim Baker
  • Tom Wilson (Lee Harvey Osmond) 
  • Whitehorse 

The concert will kick off at 12 p.m. CST.

Later that same day, the 2020 Juno Awards will be broadcast live across Canada on March 15 at 6. p.m. CT (8 p.m. ET) on CBC-TV, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, and CBC Gem, and globally on cbcmusic.ca/junos.

Other Juno Week events will include the kick-off concert, the Juno Cup fundraising hockey game, the Juno comedy show highlighting this year's comedy album of the year nominees, as well as Juno Fest, two jam-packed days of concerts taking place in venues across Saskatoon.
