CLICK HERE TO VOTE FOR FARE THEE WELL LOVE!
In January, CBC Music and CBC Radio One’s Atlantic Airwaves asked the public to nominate their favourite East Coast songs to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the East Coast Music Association (ECMA). Over the last two weeks, they received more than 5,000 nominations and, beginning today, fans can see the Top 10 East Coast Songs list and vote for their favourite song at www.cbcmusic.ca/ecma.
“The range and variety of nominated songs speaks to the incredible number of great tunes from Atlantic Canada,” said Peggy Hemsworth, producer of Atlantic Airwaves. “In addition to songs that people would expect to see on the top 10 list, there are also a couple of surprises.”
All 10 songs will be performed in a countdown concert, starting with number 10 and working up to number one during a special live broadcast of CBC Radio One’s Atlantic Airwaves at the Spatz Theatre in Halifax on Saturday, March 09 at 4:30 p.m. The concert will feature performances from George Canyon, Jenn Grant, Ben Caplan, Jimmy Rankin and Maureen Ennis. Tickets are $20 and are available at www.ticketpro.ca or by phoning 1-888-311-9090. The concert will also be broadcast to listeners in the entire region on a special edition of Atlantic Airwaves starting at 5 p.m. that day on CBC Radio One.
