Great Night for Saint John at MNB Awards


tomatotomatoIt was a great night for Saint John as Music NB celebrated excellence in the New Brunswick music industry during its MNB Awards Gala at the Tide and Boar Ballroom in Moncton last night. The event also kicked off Festival (506), which takes place through October 18th. All in all, some 30 prizes were awarded to New Brunswick artists and music industry professionals.

Notable among these recipients was Saint John’s own Tomato/Tomato, who were awarded three prizes: Folk Artist of the Year, Group Recording of the Year (for So it goes) and the SOCAN Song of the Year. Country artist Tristan Horncastle received the award for Album of the Year, Country Artist of the Year and the Fan’s Choice award.

Singer-songwriter Joey Robin Haché was awarded a number of awards including Enregistrement de l’année, Enregistrement solo de l’année and Chanson SOCAN de l’Année (for Corail les alentours). The Choix du public award was presented to Hôtesses d’Hilaire, who also received the award for Video of the Year.

Proud of the event’s success, Jean Surette, Executive Director of Music NB was pleased to note yet again that New Brunswick is brimming with talent. “We are very fortunate to have such a dynamic music industry here in New Brunswick,” he said.

Festival (506) continues through the weekend, showcasing more than 40 artists on four different stages throughout Moncton. For information regarding the festival schedule visit
