One of the things I love move about the JUNO Awards, on top of celebrating the best in Canadian music, is that whenever they roll into their host city, plenty of concerts, activities, and fun things happen during JUNO Week (this year’s being March 19-25 in Vancouver). The event announcements keep coming and today’s news is about the 15th annual JUNO Cup presented by CBC Sports.
