Polaris Prize long list offers snapshot of Canada's diverse music scene in 2019
The 2019 long list is stacked with recent q guests
Every Friday, the q This panel looks at the biggest stories in music news. Today, CBC arts reporter Lisa Christiansen and freelance music journalist Stuart Berman join host Tom Power to talk about the Polaris Prize long list.
Yesterday, 40 bands and artists from across the country found out that they're in the running to win a $50,000 cash prize this fall. Beyond the money, the Polaris Prize is a recognition of great Canadian music that gives us a sense of what our country sounds like in 2019.
Chistiansen and Berman, who are both Polaris jury members, tell us more.
