The guitarist, singer-songwriter and folk-rock whirlwind Terra Lightfoot has been unavoidable of late, among other things appearing on stage as the guest of Randy Bachman recently at Toronto's Massey Hall.

This past weekend, she took care of business at the Hamilton Music Awards, where she was celebrated as top female artist, best female vocalist and songwriter of the year, all on the strength of her album Everytime My Mind Runs Wild.

Others who snagged multiple trophies were Tom Wilson (top male artist and numero-uno roots recording for his Lee Harvey Osmond project), Monster Truck (rock recording and best group), the Dirty Nil (album of the year and best indie/alternative rock recording) and Whitehorse guitarist Luke Doucet.

As for the industrious Lightfoot, she also keeps busy as one of the artists (with Kevin Drew, Hayden and the National) on the bill for a benefit concert for Syrian youth on June 3 at Hamilton's New Vision United Church (ticketfly.com).
