P.E.I. singer/songwriter Dennis Ellsworth has been selected by jury for the national top 10 of the CBC Searchlight — the hunt for Canada's top new artist.
Four of those artists will move on to the finals. Fans can help support Ellsworth by voting at http://music.cbc.ca/#/Searchlight.
Voting the next round closes at 5 p.m. on Monday. The winer will be announced next Friday.
Ellsworth was part of the Songwriter Concert presented by Music P.E.I. during Music P.E.I. Week 2014 in January.
The sold-out show, which featured Jim Cuddy and the nominees for the Music P.E.I. Songwriter of the Year Award, was recorded by Charlottetown engineer Adam Gallant for Sirius XM to be broadcast on The Verge and Iceberg.
Along with Cuddy, the exciting show featured Meaghan Blanchard, Jordan Cameron, Ashley Condon, Ellsworth, Catherine MacLellan and John MacPhee.
The show can be heard this weekend. The Verge is on XM channel 173 and Iceberg is on Sirius channel 161.
The concert will be airing today at 10 p.m. EST on The Verge and Sunday at 7 p.m. EST on Iceberg.
