A big congratulations to our own Cam Hayden, who has been named Blues Booster of the Year by the Toronto Blues Society.

The society recognized Cam for his dedication to blues music, both as the host of Friday Night Blues Party and one of the main minds behind the Edmonton Blues Festival.

“The Toronto Blues Society Board of Directors is delighted to acknowledge the years of steadfast dedication made by Cam Hayden as a broadcaster and event organizer”, says Derek Andrews, president of Toronto Blues Society.

“As the driving force behind the Edmonton Blues Festival has set the standard for blues festivals in Canada which is a direct result of Cam’s passion and amazing insights to the blues genre. Cam Hayden is a true Blues Booster.”

The society will honour Cam, and the rest of the winners, at a shindig in Toronto at the end of the month.

So way to go, Cam! You can catch the blues-boosting man himself every week on Friday Night Blues Party at 9pm MT.
