Vancouver aboriginal-music record nominated for Grammy
Former Straight staffer Kevin Howes produced album of forgotten folk, rock, country gems
A Vancouver-made compilation record of forgotten or neglected North American aboriginal music from the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s received a nomination for a 2016 Grammy award today.
The album, Native North America Vol. 1: Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966-1985, was released almost a year ago by Seattle-based label Light in the Attic Records.
Vancouver deejay and vinyl collector Kevin Howes, a former Georgia Straight editorial assistant whose performing name is Sipreano, is named as compilation producer; mastering engineer Greg Mindorff, from East Van’s Suite Sound Labs, also received a nomination. http://nationtalk.ca/story/vancouver-aboriginal-music-record-nominated-for-grammy-straight-com
