'Tis the Season... for Music Awards!

It's awards season -- nominees and prize winners recently for the Nobel, Booker, Giller, G.G.'s -- and music is no exception.  Next weekend, it's the Western Canadian Music Awards -- and we'll have a special show, Breakout West, coming to you from Kelowna, B.C. where the awards are being given out. (More on that in next week's post!)

This week's Key of A takes a listen to Alberta WCMA nominees in the Francophone, Contemporary Album, and Songwriter categories, with artists Ariane Mahryke Lemire and multiple nominee Corb Lund.

16-year-old Lucas Chaisson of Cochrane has just been nominated for Young Performer of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. CBC was on hand to record Lucas at the 2010 Transcanada Alberta Music Series, and we'll hear that live show on this week's Key of A.

We'll also hear from Fort Macleod artist John Wort Hannam, whose album Queen's Hotel is up for both the Contemporary Album and Roots Solo categories at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Plus, Edmonton-based Asani; their album Listen is in the running for the Aboriginal Songwriter of the Year.
