JUNO Awards handed out in Winnipeg

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) handed out 31 JUNO Awards during a gala dinner and awards ceremony on Saturday in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Folk music winners presented (as seems to be the standard practice) with their awards off-air included A Poodle in Paris by Connie Kaldor for Children’s Album of the Year, Hopetown by Jenny Whiteley for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year – Solo (beating out David Francey and Harry Manx), and 40 Days by the Wailin’ Jennys (who were up against The Bills, Leahy, Nathan and La Volee d’Castors). Sarah Harmer, who picked up a prize for Adult Alternative Album of the Year for All of our Names, performed a tribute on last night’s telecast hosted by Brent Butt to Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees, The Tragically Hip.
