Kootenay Music Awards announces new event producer

Kootenay Co-op Radio is super jazzed to announce the hiring of Andrea Varsany as the event producer for this year's Kootenay Music Awards, happening on March 16th at the Bloom Nightclub.

Varsany has been a dedicated volunteer programmer at KCR for over a year, hosting 'Music Nerds' heard every Thursday on the station at 7pm. We are very excited to have her getting more involved in the station. Andrea has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ryerson University in Toronto and has worked here in town for Shambhala Music Festival.

This is the Sixth year of the Kootenay Music Awards, a celebration of music from all over the West and East Kootenay's. This is the second year that Kootenay Co-op Radio has taken on this event and we are looking forward to making it bigger and better every year. With submissions coming in from all over the region the Kootenay Music Awards showcase the quality and diversity of talent we are so lucky to be surrounded by.

Artist submissions open January 15th, so mark it in your calendars!
