A big congratulations goes out to Winnipeg's Del Barber, who recently took home two 2011 Western Canadian Music Awards for Roots Solo Recording and Independent Album of the Year

Since Del's performance at the cafe in October during the 2010 Breakout West Festival, he has been touring non stop and I even by chance heard him on CBC's Q with Jian Ghomeshi in early April. His BOWF performance at Streaming Cafe was not only videoed and recorded in our regular fashion, but CBC came out and recorded the show that they posted as part of their Concerts on Demand series on their site (listen here).
It was a great performance as CBC stated - "The Streaming Café is the perfect place to here him play - on a small stage against a wall made of stacked rounds of dried cherry wood. It was a warm and engaging venue for a singer who plays from the heart."

Here's a clip we put together from his performance at Streaming Cafe.
