Last night kicked off the performance and awards frenzy of East Coast Music Week, Mary Jane Lamond & Wendy MacIsaac and Ben Caplan sung their hearts out at Roots Room while the roots/traditional and folk awards were handed out to Prince Edward Island's Tim Chaisson for roots/traditional solo recording of the year for The Other Side; Newfoundland's The Once took home the Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year for Row Upon Row of the People They Know; Nova Scotia's Rose Cousins won the Folk Recording of the Year for her album We Have Made A Spark and Natalie MacMaster received the ECMA for Traditional Instrumental Recording of the Year for Cape Breton Girl. You can guess where she's from.

Jenn Grant popped the pop/rock stage to pieces and won Pop Recording of the Year for *The Beautiful Wild* performing with The Tom Fun Orchestra and Ria Mae.

Survey Asks

Should Nova Scotia revisit its fracking ban now that an Energy Department analysis has found $20 billion worth of natural gas offshore?

  • Frack, baby, frack!
  • No amount of money is worth the environmental damage
  • Let’s invest in renewable energies instead
  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
