This year Toronto’s NXNE Festival initiated a new radius clause which states that “artists playing NXNE cannot book shows within the Toronto market for 45 days before our festival dates (June 18-22).” .Toronto folk group Birds of Bellwoods played a charity function supporting Toronto’s homeless community…38 days before their NXNE gig….so now their NXNE show at The Cameron House is no more.

Below is a letter that the group has released.
