- Finalist, Biography (Adult Nonfiction)
Until his death in 1982, Edmonton luthier and composer Frank Gay built guitars for several famous musicians, including country stars Johnny Cash, Don Gibson, Webb Pierce, and Hank Snow. He entranced listeners with his singular talent on guitar and lute, and was well known within the music industry. Very few recordings of his work exist. In uncovering the story of this private yet charming and often troubled man, Trevor Harrison does a tremendous service to music history.
