The 25th annual East Coast Music Week was held in Halifax March 6-10, 2013, with hundreds of musicians from the Atlantic provinces and music industry representatives from around the world taking part in showcases, panels, seminars and networking events. Artists from this province made a great showing at the event, performing all week long at sold-out venues. The Once was the only act to take home a music award, however, a handful of others, including Rawlins Cross, Fred's Records and CBC's Glen Tilley, also won trophies. The Telegram was on site in Halifax all weekend. Here's a slideshow of some of the highlights.
