Local Concerts To See While In Ottawa For The 2017 JUNOs

Local Concerts To See While In Ottawa For The 2017 JUNOs

Welcome to Ottawa, it’s a pretty awesome place to be. We’re so happy you’re here for a few days – whether it be for business, pleasure, or, oh yeah, the 2017 JUNO Awards! The local musicians have compiled a list of off-the-beaten-track concerts we’re organizing – one of the things I personally love the most about the 613 is how close-knit the music community is. Here are the listings, be sure to attend at least two, and go see local talent before the day that they too are on that big stage, accepting an award.
