The East Coast Music Association (ECMA) unveiled the recipients of the 2021 Honorary East Coast Music Awards and PEI singer-songwriter Tara MacLean is one of five artists to receive the Stompin’ Tom Award.
The Stompin’ Tom Award honours Stompin’ Tom Connors, one of the most well known Canadian musicians. It was created to honour those who have made a long-term contribution to the East Coast Music Industry and paved the road for many successful East Coast artists of today.
The award is presented to one individual or group from each of the ECMA’s five regions—PEI, New Brunswick, Mainland Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, and Newfoudland and Labrador.
Originally scheduled to take place in Sydney, CB, the ECMA virtual edition of the 2021 East Coast Music Awards: Festival & Conference will be held entirely online, June 9–13.
The 2021 ECMA Awards Show will take place June 10. The Virtual Music & Industry Awards, which include the 2021 ECMA Honorary Awards recipients, will be presented June 13. Both award shows will be streamed online via the ECMA’s Facebook and Youtube.
