Pierre Schryer is “thrilled” with his Western Canadian Music Awards nomination.

The Sault Ste. Marie native and Adam Dobres received a nod for instrumental album of the year for Mandorla.

It’s defintely good news these days, while we’re trying to stay afloat as artists during this pandemic,” Schryer told The Sault Star in an email.

The pair was also nominated in the same category for the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

2020 will be a year to reflect on, and have gratitude for, what we do have,” said Schryer. “We hope to share live music with you next year.”

The resident of Victoria, B.C., was scheduled to perform with Sault Symphony Orchestra at Sault Community Theatre Centre on April 18. That show was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Harpdog Brown is nominated in the best blues artist category.

He’s played several shows in the Sault.

Brown is “deeply touched” with the accolade.

Just to be one of the these five amazing Canadian artists is a win in my opinion,” he said in an email.

The awards will be presented at a livestreamed event on Sept. 25.
