Just got back from the Canadian Folk Music Awards in Edmonton this weekend. Its always great to hear music and discover some new music along the way. I always have enjoyed John Wort Hannom and I’m looking forward to listening to his new CD Love Lives On. Kevin Breit had a lovely story in his acceptance speech for the Olive Schroer Pushing the Boundaries award. The personal that has a universal ring to it is always welcome in any event. Got a chance to see and connect with friends and its always great to talk about art and music so even though I had to work at something that is not my main gig, being the MC, I still managed to have a good time.
I agree with the organisers of this event that it is important to celebrate the vast pool of talent that makes up this vibrant scene. We can’t be Canada’s best kept secret forever!
