Ken Yates and Abigail Lapell win big at Canadian Folk Music Awards!


Congratulations to Ken Yates and Abigail Lapell for their wins at the 2017 Canadian Folk Music Awards! The gala took place on Sunday, Nov. 19 at the Bronson Centre in Ottawa.

Ken took home two awards honouring his latest album Huntsville: English Songwriter of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year.

Abigail’s latest album Hide Nor Hair was named Contemporary Album of the Year, which it truly deserved.
