I've seen April Vertch live. Man what a show. Speaking of Valdy I have a side kick of his that is going to play at the coffee house in the spring(Gary Fjellgaard). The actual opening of the show will be by Saskia and Darrel who are touring with Gary. Gary will do a few numbers. Please say hello to Bill G. from myself if by chance you get to speak to him.

I'm afraid it's a little late for us to get to the awards. : ) Judy is a few miles away in Flint, Mi., with a big choral group she tours the state with each November (I've already seen their show for this year). I'm finishing some bacon-wrapped chestnut appetizers, as our art association is pot-lucking the goodies for the reception for our holiday season show tonight.
We've been fortunate enough to have both April and Valdy at a house concert series nearby in the last couple of years; "Comfy Concerts", put on by Paint Creek Folklore Society in Rochester Hills. I still don't believe the level of people they line up for house concerts.

Well April and Valdemar were if fine form, and it was a blast all around, you would have loved it... an old, well restored octagonal church with a hugh pipe organ... though nobody played it... I guess it's harder to carry around and practice on one, than a kazoo.. and if you're Calumet, Quebec , a used comb and wax paper...

I'll fill you in more later.. well organized, grassroots, good feel community event.. the kind of thing , I've come to expect from the 'Folk' community in this tall and wide country...

To Beer and Bobad.. Mr. Regenstrief was smiling broadly and extends his regards...   I got you both a program book... they'll be on their way tomorrow... some good news in the old mailbox... R.

Scroll down for the list of winners:

(The following from Heather Kitching on Maplepost):

Joel Plaskett leads a big night for Maritimers at the Canadian Folk Music Awards

Joel Plaskett was the only multiple award winner at the fifth annual
Canadian Folk Music Awards ceremony tonight in Ottawa - leading what
turned out to be a banner night for Atlantic Canadians. Plaskett
earned the prizes for Contemporary Album of the Year and Producer of
the Year while fellow Haligonian Susan Crowe was named English
Songwriter of the Year and ukulele wizard James Hill ? originally from
Langley, B.C. but now based in Brookfield, N.S. ? won Traditional
Album of the Year for his collaboration with Anne Davison.
Charlottetown's Catherine MacLellan was named Solo Artist of the Year,
and fellow Islander Colette Cheverie won Traditional Singer of the
Year.

Quebec artists dominated the world music categories this year with
Montreal's Karim Saada earning the World Solo Artist of the Year award
and Quebec City's Mansa Sissoko sharing the world group prize with
Toronto banjo player Jayme Stone for their collection Africa to
Appalachia - which also won this year's world music Juno. Montreal
artist Catherine Durand was named French Songwriter of the Year.

Toronto's Sultans of String, who had been nominated for three awards,
received the trophy for Instrumental Group of the Year, while band
member Chris McKhool earned the Children's Album of the Year Award for
his solo project FiddleFire!

The Young Performer of the Year Award went to Vineland, Ontario's
Ariana Gillis.

British Columbia and the Prairies can each lay claim to two of this
year's CFMA winners. Saskatchewan's Deep Dark Woods were named
Ensemble of the Year, and Winnipeg's Don Amero earned the Aboriginal
Songwriter of the Year award. Meanwhile, Vancouver bluesman Jim
Byrnes received the prize for Contemporary Singer of the Year, while
his frequent collaborator Steve Dawson got the award for Pushing the
Boundaries.

The Instrumental Solo Artist of the Year award went to Tony McManus,
Vocal Group of the Year went to Madison Violet, and New/Emerging
Artist of the Year was awarded to the Good Lovelies.

Tonight's ceremony took place at the Dominion Chalmers United Church
in Ottawa. It was hosted by the CBC's Shelagh Rogers and by Benoit
Bourque of the band La Bottine Souriante. The performers included Old
Man Luedecke, April Verch, Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer and songwriting
legend Valdy.

Founded in 2005, The Canadian Folk Music Awards recognize Canada's
outstanding writers, producers and performers of folk music, and the
artists who are expanding the genre in innovative and exciting ways.
While the Junos pay homage to Canada's pop music success stories, the
CFMAs celebrate the magnificent diversity of Canada's musical heritage
? from the musical traditions of Aboriginal Canada to Celtic, Acadian
and traditional Quebecois styles, singer-songwriter music, blues,
bluegrass and old-tyme country and the myriad of global traditions
brought to Canada by each new wave of immigration. What's more, the
CFMAs provide an opportunity to draw Canadians' attention to the depth
and breadth of folk music in Canada.

The CFMAs are judged by independent juries of industry experts who
remain at arms-length from the organizers. There is a different panel
for each category. Results are tabulated by an independent chartered
accountant.
