We’ll gather some of Saskatoon’s best and brightest music critics to discuss the 2015 Polaris Music Prize and explain how Canada’s best album (without regard to musical genre, professional affiliation, or sales history) gets chosen each year.
This event will also feature a Q&A session with the audience and networking opportunities immediately following the Panel. Of special note to savvy record collector types, there will also be prizes.
Moderated by Steve Jordan (Polaris Founder and Executive Director)
Alex MacPherson (Verb)
Stephanie McKay (Saskatoon StarPhoenix)
Adrien Begrand (Decibel, Terrorizer, PopMatters)
Chris Morin (Saskatoon StarPhoenix, Ominocity)
Craig Silliphant (Planet S Magazine)
This event will be held at Prairie Sun Brewery, 2020 Quebec Ave, Saskatoon, SK S7K 1W5
