John Ellison to Receive West Virgina Award

In 2009, Dundas resident and Soul legend John Ellison received the lifetime achievement award from the Hamilton Music Awards.  Now on October 3, 2013, his native city of West Virginia will bring him even more accolades.

The Some Kind of Wonderful songwriter will receive a Because of  You (Spirit of the Coal Fields) award during the 2013 Miners' Celebration.  It's given to honour the heritage of the West Virginia coal fields (Ellison was born in the mining town of Landgraff).
