In case you missed them, here are the 2020 ECMA winners in the roots categories
The East Coast Music Awards were handed out this past weekend in a ceremony that, like all others this year, was not a ceremony at all but rather a pre-produced, physically distanced video production streamed live online. As always, the winners list demonstrates just how much the east coast punches above its weight in the Canadian music scene. Here’s who won the roots and Indigenous categories this year (it appears they didn’t hand out a world music award).
Blues Recording of the Year: Myles Goodwyn – Myles Goodwyn and Friends of the Blues 2
Contemporary Roots Recording of the Year: The East Pointers – Yours to Break
Country Recording of the Year: Dave Sampson – All Types of Ways
Folk Recording of the Year: Tim Baker – Forever Overhead
Indigenous Artist of the Year: Eastern Owl
Roots / Traditional Recording of the Year: Natalie MacMaster – Sketches
