Gold Winner Joel Plaskett

Silver Winner Mo Kenney

Bronze Winner Jenn Grant

Your longtime fave Plaskett—this round he’s a four-time winner, the Big Little Lies of BOH—has had a typically action-packed year producing and playing, including releasing and touring Solidarity with his dad Bill. And that’s in addition to running his downtown Dartmouth community hub, New Scotland Records, where you can catch him just hanging out. His upcoming production slate is full too, with records from Dennis Ellsworth, Bend the River and Jimmy Rankin on deck. “This city, The Coast and its readers have been so kind and supportive to me over the years,” says Plaskett. “I’m honoured again with these awards. This community and my great friends here continue to inspire me. My sincere thanks.”
