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.
