Local folk-indie musician Adam Hanney has been recognized with the Galaxie Rising Star Award at the Winnipeg Folk Festival.
Hannay has been making music since he was 16, and was mentored at this year’s festival by Annick Bremault and Sacha Daoud from Chic Gamine.
The Galaxie Young Performers Program is a stepping-stone for musicians in their career development. Now in its 15th year, the program has seen hundreds of youth between the ages of 14 and 24 develop their musical talents through this mentorship and performance opportunity.
This is Galaxie’s fifth year as a presenting partner for the Young Performers Program.
The Folk Festival wraps up on Sunday.
