I came across this article by Francois Marchand in the Vancouver Sun this week talking about how strongly British Columbia will be represented at the Juno Awards this year in the Children’s Album category. The Junos take place this weeekend – April 17-18 in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
Three of the five acts nominated in the category are from B.C. – but the part we’re super happy about is that two of those three performed at the last Vancouver Island Baby Fair in Victoria! We featured both Bobs and Lolo and The Kerplunks at our 2009 event. Good luck to you both this weekend!
Here’s a quick snippet of the article:
There must be something in the water in British Columbia.
How else can you explain three of the five acts nominated in the Children’s album of the year category hailing from this province?
We’re not talking small fries, either.
All three — Norman Foote, Bobs & Lolo and the Kerplunks — are award-winning, internationally acclaimed, parent-approved blockbuster acts that have charmed kids of all ages all over North America.
So who has the better angle to walk away with the trophy?
Is it Foote and his Love My New Shirt? Bobs & Lolo’s Action Packed? Or the Kerplunks and Walk On?
