CBC Music and SOCAN are pleased to announce the Junos 365 Songwriters' Circle in a new five-episode online format, presented in association with Music Publishers Canada.

Normally a highlight of Juno Week, which was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Junos Songwriters' Circle has traditionally gathered some of Canada's finest singer-songwriters for an informal jam session of songs and stories.

In the absence of that perennially popular event, CBC Music has decided to produce something similar, but with musicians and their guests performing in their homes rather than onstage.

Scroll down to watch episodes 1 and 2 of the Juno 365 Songwriters' Circle, hosted by Brett Kissel and Rose Cousins, respectively.

Episode 3 will be hosted by Halifax-based, Juno Award-winning artist Joel Plaskett on Friday, May 29, at 8 p.m. ET. His guests will be Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee Buffy Sainte-Marie, three-time Juno Award winner City and Colour and Juno-winning singer-songwriter Sarah Harmer.

Tune in on Facebook, YouTube, CBC Gem or cbcmusic.ca/junos.

Subsequent episodes will be broadcast every second Friday.

The Junos 365 Songwriters' Circle series is brought to you by TD.
