Last week The East Coast Music Association (ECMA) announced they would be moving this year’s Festival & Conference online due to rising COVID-19 numbers in Nova Scotia. To accommodate the move to virtual, they have rescheduled the celebration to June 9th to 13th, 2021.
The 2021 East Coast Music Awards show presented by Dairy Farmers of Canada will take place on Thursday, June 10th and the Music & Industry Awards presented by TD, which includes the 2021 ECMA Honorary Awards recipients, will take place on Sunday, June 13th. Both award shows will be streamed online via the ECMA’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. I am very fortunate to live in a city where there is a ton of amazing musicians. I’ve grown very fond of the local music scene in St. John’s and some of my favorite bands are ones I’ve met through going to local shows.
