Established by Canada's burgeoning and internationally-recognized folk music community, the awards currently boast 20 categories. Five nominees are chosen for each category. A three stage jury process by 100 jurors located across Canada representing all official provinces, territories and languages determine the official winners in each category.

Submissions are also open for the Unsung Hero award. This annual legacy category award recognizes the exceptional contribution of an individual, group, or organization to any aspect of the Canadian Folk music scene. Nominees must be perceived as an "unsung hero"; someone who has received little in the way of national and/or public recognition for their accomplishments.

Unsung Hero submissions are also via online submission form and must include:
  • Name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail of the individual(s) submitting the application
  • Name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail, website (if applicable) of the nominee

  • Three letters supporting the nomination from other individuals or organizations (please do not submit more than 3 letters)

There is no entry fee for this award category.  All submissions must be submitted via online submission form by June 30, 2016. The Unsung Hero category is judged by the board of the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Complete details are online at http://folkawards.ca/eligibility/unsung-hero-award/ 

The 12th edition of the CFMA weekend takes place December 2 and 3rd, 2016 in  Toronto, Ontario and includes concerts from many of the nominees. The gala awards event, featuring live performances from some of the best of Canada's folk community, happens at the Isabel Bader Theatre on December 3, 2016.

Rest In Peace HUDDY COMBS SPEAKS ON DIPSET REUNION

RIP, HUDDY!

Harlem world rapper Huddy Combs (no relation to Diddy) died yesterday in a car accident. Apparently he was driving on the George Washington Bridge with a female and his car hit a tractor trailer truck. He was dead at the scene of the accident. Diddy tweeted about it too. From what I heard, Huddy was a best friend of Cam and Mase from back in the days. He was the dude that got Cam’ron to the hospital when he got shot in 2005. He was also a rapper in Mase’s short lived group Harlem World. RIP.

”My man here saved my life,” -Cam'ron said.
