Humber Graduate takes home Juno
By Taylor Parsons
Sunday marked the 43rd annual Juno Awards, hosted in Winnipeg. The night also proved one to remember for a Humber graduate.
Jon Hembrey, and other members of the band The Strumbellas took home the award for “Roots & Traditional Album of the Year – Group”.
Hembrey is the bands guitarist, and a graduate of Humber’s journalism program.
“I’m more at ease this year, but when they announce our category I think I’ll be just as nervous and excited as I was last year,” he said.
After the announcement of the group’s win, Hembrey posted to his personal Facebook, with notably more excitement.
“To quote my good friend Jer: Holy f—” he wrote.
The band also posted to their own Facebook page, posing with their new award. Hembrey is pictured holding the award.
Next year’s 2015 Juno awards will be hosted in Hamilton and broadcast on March 15th, 2015.
