Here are your 2023 Juno Award winners in the roots, world and Indigenous categories

Guitar in Woods

The Juno Awards telecast may not get underway until tomorrow, but the awards we care about were handed out Saturday night in Edmonton, and there’s lots of wonderful news in this list of winners: Digging Roots taking home their second career Juno; Lenka Lichtenberg winning the global category for an album derived from poetry that her grandmother wrote in a concentration camp during the Second World War; Pharis and Jason Romero winning their fourth consecutive Juno in as many nominations and emerging victorious in the battle of titans that was that category this year; and Angelique Francis putting the cherry on top of an impressive rise up the Canadian blues ranks.

Congratulations to everyone who took home a trophy!
