Aboriginal Album of the Year

Yesterday Canada honored the best in music with the Juno Awards.
Buffy Sainte-Marie won Aboriginal Album of the Year for her latest CD “Running for the Drum.”

”Gee, I'm very much surprised and grateful, she said backstage afterward. "I got an Academy award and a Golden Globe and a Gemini and a buncha stuff, but ... the Junos are a big deal in Canada, and the show is seen around the world, so to be acknowledged for the fun I've had is a real treat.”

If you haven’t listened to this incredible CD you must. It’s available for purchase through Buffy’s website, or through Amazon.

Congratulations, Buffy.
