The classically trained operatic tenor and composer beat out nine Canadian albums from artists and bands for the $50,000 monetary reward.
Performances from the Gala had Dutcher, Weaves, Jean-Michel Blais, Hubert Lenoir, Deep Waters Band (of Girls Rock Camp) did a cover of Alvvays, Pierre Kwenders and Partners.
This year’s Gala went pretty long but the performances from the bands and musicians were all excellent.
It’s always a great time attending the gala and seeing friends and acquaintances.
