CFMA's: Steve Edge - Slaight Music Unsung Hero 2016


Here's a link to the Canadian Folk Music Awards ceremony held December 3rd in Toronto's Isabel Bader Theatre. The video starts with a dark stage and a lot of audience chatter for several minutes, so drag the red dot to the right until you see some people on stage. You can watch the whole show (this is only the first two hours!!) or drag that red dot to around the 1h 45m mark to see me receive my award - and the longest sustained applause of the whole evening! If you view it in Full Screen mode you can see the slide show I created to accompany my speech. My gosh! What a fantastic experience it was!

Part two - which features a short set by Bruce Cockburn, can be viewed here

Huge thanks to the CFMAs, Slaight Music Foundation (the award sponsor), and Rogue President Dan Bowditch for making it all possible - and making it such a special occasion for me! 

(Dan took that photo, with me holding the award - and "Sock Monkey Jack", who attends all sorts of prestigious events across Canada, apparently!)
