MUSIC PEI WEEK WINNERS

Sunday, March 28th, Music PEI held the annual Awards Party and handed out 31 awards at the PEI Convention Centre. As all things over the past 12 months, it was a much different affair than previous years. Social distancing was the rule of the day.

Catherine MacLellan took home Crabbe Road Productions Solo Recording, Music Publishers Canada Song of the Year (with Tara MacLean) and Contemporary Roots Recording of the Year. Dylan Menzie received SOCAN Songwriter of the Year, FACTOR Entertainer of the Year and tied with Lawrence Maxwell for the Buzz Album Art of the Year.
