Winner picked in annual RocKIN the Peace Contest

Geoff Kennedy picked up $1,500 and the honour of winning RocKIN the Peace 2009.

The North Peace Cultural Centre was full of local music fans Saturday night as the top 8 performed.  The top three finalists were Cynthia Hamar, Tamara Lambert, and Geoff Kennedy.

RocKIN the Peace is a yearly event created by the Kin Club of Fort St. John to show case local talent in the Peace Region.  Artists submitted their music earlier this year, and the top 8 were picked to perform Saturday night and be on the 2009 CD, which will be sold around the Peace region.

Proceeds from the night will go towards the Kin Club of Fort St. John.  The 2009 RocKIN the Peace CD is available now and they will have a DVD of Saturdays show shortly.
