GOOD LUCK! Local Canadian Folk Music Award Nominees


The Canadian Folk Music Awards recently unveiled the nominees for their 10th annual celebration and three talented, area musicians will be up for awards. Hopefully, a few of them will take home the hardware on November 19, 2017 at the ceremony in Ottawa.

The Hidden Roots Collective (featuring Hamilton's Anni Sumi) is in the The New/Emerging Artist of the Year category. 


Former Guelphite Stephen Fearing leads the pack of nominees with four nods (Solo Artists of the Year, English Songwriter of the Years, Contemporary Singer of the Year and Producer of the Year).
