Music Roundup (Archive)

In September 2020, we merged the Music Roundup into the Arts Roundup. We remain committed to helping Edmontonians better understand the local music scene, and we encourage musicians, venues, promoters, and everyone else in the industry to continue sending news and other updates to us at hello@taprootedmonton.ca. The Arts Roundup comes out every Thursday morning.

The History

The Music Roundup, launched in July 2018, brought together the latest news, concert announcements, event listings, and other updates from Edmonton’s music community.

The Music Roundup was originally curated by Sandra Sperounes, a veteran music writer who had a long career at the Edmonton Journal and then as an entertainment columnist on CBC Radio. It was later curated by Emily Rendell-Watson, who is now Taproot Edmonton’s managing editor.
