The 2018 Juno Awards show was a gathering of Canada’s best musicians working in the industry today and was a celebration of Canadian music.  The also had a beautiful tribute to one of the greatest Canadians ever to work in the industry.

Kevin Drew and Pearl Wenjack introduced the tribute to Gord Downie with some commentary about the Canadian icon before Sarah Harmer, accompanied by Kevin Hearn of The Barenaked Ladies on piano, performed the title track from Downie’s 2017 solo album Introduce Yerself.

Dallas Green (City and Colour) then performed The Tragically Hip’s “Bobcaygeon,” and was joined by Harmer to close the tribute. Here’ CBC’s video.

I’m not crying, you’re crying!
