Avril, Nickelback lead JUNO performers
Date: Friday, February 06 2004
AVRIL Lavigne, Nickelback, Sarah McLachlan and seven-time JUNO winners Barenaked Ladies will lead the cast of artists performing at this year's Canadian music awards in Edmonton.
The JUNO awards, now in their 33rd year, will be broadcast on CTV live on Sunday April 4 at 8pm (9pm Atlantic Time).
Also featured will be singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado, and debut performer Michael Buble, 25, from Vancouver - already hitting the right notes as a Swing singing sensation.
Avril gained four JUNO awards last year - which was her debut - while Sarah McLachlan and Grammy-nominated Nickelback are both five-time JUNO winners. Further artists are to be added to the roster.
The awards are organised by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (CARAS) and further details, including ticketing, can be found on: www.juno-awards.ca
