Polaris Prize Announces 2014 Fall Salons

It’s not called “Fall” around these parts, but Polaris Season, and founder and Executive Director Steve Jordan has announced the details surrounding the Polaris Music Prize Salons.

The salons have become a mainstay for Polaris, and allow jury members and journalists to discuss their picks and predictions for the winner of Canadian album of the year.
