GUEST,Arnie Naiman 2007 Canadian Folk Music Awards (60* d) RE: 2007 Canadian Folk Music Awards 04 Dec 07

These awards are a really good excuse for the professional Canadian Folk Music community to feel proud of their accomplishments and all the nominees were well deserving of that in my opinion. It's a great incestuous folkie party. Unfortunately in a contest only one person wins - that's the way they do it. I think they should change it to the 3 best recordings of the year in each category- and then the press coverage would be so much better for more great recordings and artists that most people aren't even aware of.
Debbie Carroll's Simply Beautiful should have been in there (in my biased opinion) and so should have my buddies Erynn Marshall & Chris Coole. Only the winners will get to flog their winnings with obnoxious marketing propaganda- the music biz is so much fun!
What's really good to know Debbie, is that whoever gets your recording in their homes for the benefit of their children will be so much richer because of it, and I know your cd will make it's way in the world just fine regardless of any awards. You have created a very fine project and I congratulate you- many people will realize this, and we are very proud to have you on the Merriweather Record Label.
