Awards of Excellence Celebration
With Music by Tristan Horncastle and Band
This year we are changing it up and bringing you all of the parts of our annual event that are talked about for years to come!
We will start the night off by announcing and celebrating the excellent work of our Members and then go right into a “good ole maritime shindig” with toe-tapping music by Tristan Horncastle and his band. We invite everyone (although not required) to bring their cowboy boots, hats, blue jeans, singing voices, and dance moves.
After the party, we will continue the celebrations in the hospitality suite.
This is the celebration you DON’T want to miss.
Comfortable attire that doesn’t restrict your dance moves is recommended!

In a musical landscape filled with track-based, beat-focused songs, CCMA Rising Star nominee Tristan Horncastle stands out by upholding the time-honored country tradition of storytelling.
The Fredericton, New Brunswick native grew up singing in church and listening to some of the finest raconteurs of the ’90s. “Tracy Lawrence, Mark Chesnutt, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn – I knew every song they ever released,” says Horncastle.
Four years after high school, Horncastle formed his first group, Southern Drive. It was a surprise to many. “When I started that band, nobody knew I played music because I was kind of shy,” he says. “I was scared of people judging me. People would come to shows and be like, ‘Holy crap, you can sing?!’ and I’d say, ‘Well yeah, I guess so.'”
In 2015, he won three Music New Brunswick Awards for Album, Country artist and Recording of the Year and was nominated in the Rising Star category at the Canadian Country Music Awards. He followed that success with a second album, Turnin’ Up A Sundown, which won Country Recording of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards. He’s opened shows for artists including George Canyon, Travis Tritt, Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee, Randy Houser, Easton Corbin, Joe Nichols, Sammy Kershaw, Gord Bamford, The Road Hammers and Washboard Union.
