Music PEI Awards (Jule Malet-Veale)

Catherine MacLellan, The East Pointers, Ashley Condon, and Dennis Ellsworth & Kinley Dowling Tied For 2018 Music PEI Awards

How many award-winning musicians can you fit on an island? The upcoming Music PEI Week in January should be able to answer that as they cram almost every one of their musicians and industry professionals into a conference  room. We’ve even got the list of nominees for their 2018 Awards to give us an idea of who will be attending.
