With the Still Running Online Concert Series, now three quarters of the way through its programming, the Festival brings some fantastic artists to intimate live events, and some recorded for home viewing.

Themed Uprooted the video acknowledge the state and feel of the entire performance industry right now. Performances Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc of the celebrated PEI trad band Vishtèn, Steve Dawson & Fats Kaplin from Nashville, and the soaring vocals of Blick Bassy. These videos are free to watch, but if you can, the festival welcomes any kind of donation you might be able to make.
