Matt Mays, Ron Sexsmith and Downchild Deliver Junos to the Area

Unfortunately, not too many local musicians won Junos on March 30, 2014.  Still, we were well represented by threefabulous acts. Veterans Downchild (with members from the Niagara and Brantford areas) took home the Best Blues Album award.  Hamilton-born Rocker Matt Mays also received the award for Best Rock Album. St. Catharines musician Ron Sexsmith won Best Adult Alternative Album for his CD, Forever Endeavour
