Errol Ranville to receive lifetime achievement award

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 14/10/2011 (2689 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Errol Ranville has dedicated his life to making music, now he will receive the lifetime achievement award at the upcoming Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards.

Ranville, 58, earned the family nickname C-Weed and formed his first band in 1965 while in high school with his brothers Wally and Don. The country group was first known as C-Weed & the Weeds, before becoming simply the C-Weed Band and scoring several hits in the 1980s, including a cover of Robbie Robertson’s Evangeline.

The brothers ended their musical partnership in 1987 and Ranville released his first solo album, A Tribute to Southern Rock, in 1988.

He put a new C-Weed Band together in 1998 and has kept it going ever since, with a new greatest hits album released last year. He has also helped develop the aboriginal music program for Manitoba Music, helped found Manito Ahbee and the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards and was inducted into the Aboriginal Hall of Fame in 2005. He continues to run the talent showcase, Manitoba Star Attractions.
