Some Manitobans took home hardware from the 2009 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards last night at the MTS Centre. They include:
Best Rock Album - Eagle and Hawk
Best Country Album - Sierra Noble
Songwriter of the Year - Tracy Bone
Most Outstanding Aboriginal Manitoban Award - Darrelyne Bickel, a 15 year old country singer-songwriter from The Pas.
Not a bad crop !
Of course the show-stealer was Buffy Sainte-Marie receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award. For a bit more on BS-M also see the CBC Archives and the song that put her on the international stage...Universal Soldier.
