Canadian Songwriters Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony Returns
After a five-year absence, just in time for Canada’s 150th birthday, the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony returns with four remarkable inductions in a completely reimagined show.
On September 23rd, the bilingual celebration will take over Toronto’s iconic Massey Hall for its eighth edition. This year’s Inductees are: Beau Dommage, Bruce Cockburn, Neil Young, and Stéphane Venne.
The evening will be a celebration of Canadian song writing, following the careers of these story-tellers and visionaries who have left a permanent mark on music in Canada and around the world.
Attendees can look forward to innovative, breathtaking performances and collaborations, tributes and remarks by some of the most sought after artists, including: k.d. lang, Arkells, Randy Bachman, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Don Ross, Whitehorse, France D’Amour, Julie Payette, Elage Diouf, and many more.
Past laureates include Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Leonard Cohen, and Rush, to name a few. The evening will be filled with unforgettable moments.
The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) honours and celebrates Canadian songwriters and those who have dedicated their lives to the legacy of music, and works to educate the public about these achievements. National and non-profit, the CSHF is guided by its own board of directors who comprise both Anglophone and Francophone music creators and publishers, as well as representation from the record industry. In December 2011, SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) acquired the CSHF. The Hall of Fame’s mandate aligns with SOCAN’s objectives as a songwriter and publisher membershipbased organization. The CSHF continues to be run as a separate organization.
