Taking place on Sunday, April 3 from 12pm2pm MST at the Jack Singer Concert Hall at Arts Commons in Calgary, JUNO Songwriters' Circle is co-presented by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers (SOCAN) and Yamaha Canada Music.

The select 2016 JUNO Award nominees joining Paul Brandt on stage will be announced in the coming weeks.

"I'm proud to host this event on behalf of MusiCounts and CARAS," said Paul Brandt. "It all began with a song for me, and that song would have never been written if I hadn't had access to my school music program. This will be a unique, intimate event journeying into the stories behind the songs."
