Who do you think should win the CFMA Slaight Music Unsung Hero Award?
The board of the Canadian Folk Music Awards has announced it is currently accepting applications for the 2023 Slaight Music Unsung Hero Award. The application deadline is Aug. 31, 2022. There is no fee to apply.
The Slaight Music Unsung Hero Award is an annual award recognizing the exceptional contribution of an individual, group, or organization active in any aspect of the Canadian folk music scene (performance, promotion, presentation, etc). It is meant to recognize those not generally recognized as high profile individuals, groups or organizations but who work tirelessly behind the scenes for the love of the music and who have not been recognized for their contributions by national or international music entities. It includes volunteers in all their diversity who, year after year, lend support to folk clubs, festivals, house concerts, etc. Posthumous nominations for individuals are not accepted.
All submissions are adjudicated by members of the CFMA board of directors, who will select a recipient from the eligible submitted candidates.
