Catherine MacLellan took home three more awards during Saturday night’s Music P.E.I. Awards Gala at Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown.

Twelve awards were handed out in total at the wrapup of Metro Credit Union Music PEI Week 2012.

In addition to the three she earned Saturday night, MacLellan won two earlier in the week for a total of five.

These awards included Album of the Year, Video of the Year, Female Solo Recording, S.A.C. Songwriter and Roots Contemporary Recording.

“This year was certainly our most ambitious Music Week with so many highlights,” said Music P.E.I. executive director, Rob Oakie. 

“Each year I am continually impressed with the development and maturing of the Island music industry. Island artists continue to make their mark at home, across Canada, and around the world and are cause to make all of us proud.”

Folk-rockers Racoon Bandit won two awards on the night, Group Recording and Hunter’s Ale House Rock Recording, as did Ashley Condon, who picked up two prizes earlier in the week.

Island fiddler, teacher and luthier Kim Vincent was remembered with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Kim passed away in 2009 and was widely regarded as one of Canada's most talented traditional Irish musicians on fiddle, guitar and tin whistle.

Revered singer-songwriter Lennie Gallant was presented with the Rooted to the Island Award, given annually to a successful Island artist from PEI living elsewhere.

Other awards recipients at Saturday’s packed concert included Paper Lions for Entertainer of the Year, Tim Chaisson and Morning Fold for Spincount Touring Artist of the Year, Al Tuck for Male Solo Recording, Kinley Dowling for Musician of the Year, and the Indian River Music Festival for Achievement in Classical music. 

Music PEI industry programs and activities are made possible through the ongoing support of the provincial departments of Tourism and Culture and Innovation and Advanced Learning as well as ACOA, Canadian Heritage and FACTOR. For a full list of 2012 Award winners see the list at bottom.
