The NAC in Ottawa has local music fans covered after artists such as Joel Plaskett (Mar 18) and sibling duo of Matthew and Jill Barber (May 6) along with many other artists are set to perform during the first five months of next year as part of the sixth annual NAC Presents program.

While heavyweights like Blue Rodeo (Feb 18 & 19) and Ron Sexsmith (Apr 29) will anchor the all-Canadian lineup between January and May, there are many other up-and-coming artists worth catching too, like Indigenous artist Iskwé (Mar 3) and Newfoundland folk trio The Once (Feb 24) to name but two.

The events executive producer, Heather Gibson, is recommending Alejandra Ribera (Mar 17), a pop and jazz singer from Toronto who performs in English, French and Spanish.

The NAC theatre along with the newly-renovated Southam Hall will play host to the larger dates with the smaller shows being held at the studio and the new Back Stage venue.

Tickets go on sale to the general public October 21st.
