Best Folk Artist / Band

Gold Winner The Barrowdowns

Silver Winner Old Man Luedecke

Bronze Winner Hillsburn

The five-piece Barrowdowns have had a busy year, releasing an EP, hitting a slew of festivals including Evolve, Messtival and Folly Fest, with a showcase at Nova Scotia Music Week on deck this weekend. A new LP is in the works. “THANK YOU! Music for us has always been about creating something and getting the opportunity to share it with folks, and it’s humbling and super exciting to know that people are paying attention,” says singer Rowan Swain. “Playing music would be pretty damn boring without all you beautiful humans dancing along, so come out to a show and let’s have a beer about it!”
