Nova Scotia Music week slideshow and winners

Tall man Joel Plaskett stacks up more than three awards.


Coast photographer Scott Blackburn took a little road trip to Yarmouth for Nova Scotia Music Week. And now that we see his photos, we're really regretting missing the awards and showcases (and the Frenchy's, apparently. Umm, $4 Frye boots?)
