East Coast Music Awards Presented in New Brunswick

February 13, 2008

Proving once again that Canada is cooler than the U.S. when it comes to music, the East Coast Music Awards handed out prizes during the organization's annual conference and festival. Categories cover the gamut. Artists winning awards that, as best as I can figure, fit the Folk Alley profile (they aren't all necessarily in the playlist, the music just seems appropriate) include:

Female Solo Recording of the Year: If You Were For Me - Rose Cousins
Male Solo Recording of the Year: House For Sale - Dave Gunning
Rising Star Recording of the Year: Brand New Skin - Stephanie Hardy
DVD of the Year: Back Stage Pass - The Rankin Family
Bluegrass Recording of the Year: Saddle River String Band - Saddle River String Band
Francophone Recording of the Year: 11:11 - Vishten
Folk Recording of the Year: Looking Back - Volume 2: House For Sale - Dave Gunning
Instrumental Recording of the Year: Live From the Music Room - Troy MacGillivray
Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year: Reunion - The Rankin Family
Roots/Traditional Solo Recording of the Year: Falling On New Ground - Kimberly Fraser
