Brandon-born violinist Ehnes wins classical Juno

  • Print

REGINA — Manitoba went one-for-four at the non-televised portion of the 2013 Juno Awards, as violinist James Ehnes has added to his career cache of musical honours.

Ehnes, a former Brandonite who was up for a pair of awards, went 50/50 Saturday night by winning best large-ensemble classical album for Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto.

Two other Manitoban nominees went home empty-handed. Winnipeg singer-songwriter Don Amero and rock band Burnt Project 1 were up for aboriginal album, which was won by Manitoulin Island’s Crystal Shawanda.

The non-televised gala also honoured Lynn Lake, Man. native Tom Cochrane as Canadian music’s humanitarian of the year.

The non-televised gala, held at Regina's Queensbury Centre, is where the vast majority of the 45 Junos get handed out, including all the recordings in classical, jazz and other genre categories. Only eight awards will be presented at Sunday’s CTV-broadcast awards, hosted by Michael Buble.
