Jim Cuddy Book Signing

December 16, 2010

Just in time for the holidays, Jim Cuddy, will be signing copies of Music from Far and Wide: Celebrating Forty Years of the JUNO Awards at Real Sports Apparel on December 17 from 3 pm – 4 pm.  Proceeds from the sale of the book benefit MusiCounts.

Since 1970, the JUNO Awards has honoured Canadian music and its creators.  Music from Far and Wide: Celebrating Forty Years of the JUNO Awards chronicles the history of Canadian musical excellence from across the spectrum: from Anne Murray to Bryan Adams; from Diana Krall to K-OS. Stories and anecdotes from Canada’s leading music writers Karen Bliss, Nick Krewen, Larry LeBlanc, and Jason Schneider paired with archival and behind-the-scenes photos document four remarkable decades of our country’s rich and dynamic musical legacy.  The book’s foreword was written by Jim Cuddy.

Retailing at $40 (including taxes), all proceeds go to MusiCounts, Canada’s Music Education Charity associated with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS).

Don’t miss your chance to take home a piece of Canadian music history, signed by a true music legend.
