The remaining 2019 East Coast Music Awards were handed out last night in Charlottetown, after an initial round on Thursday. There were only three repeat winners amongst the multiple nominees—North Preston's Reeny Smith, Enfield native Classified and Toronto resident Jeremy Dutcher—which is always nice (sweeps are boring).
