MusicNL Conference and awards 2013 November 13, 2013

Every year, the province's music industry association, MusicNL, holds its conference and awards gala. It is a weekend of meetings, panels and a whole lot of playing. Performers take part in showcases, songwriters circles and impromptu jam sessions in salons, hotel rooms and even random hallways.

The Telegram is happy to sponsor the conference, and attended the many events. This year, Arts reporter Tara Bradbury headed to Gander to catch the tunes.
