Bernie Finkelstein -Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame
Artist manager Bernie Finkelstein will be inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame next February. While inductees are traditionally chosen from the business and executive ranks, officials thought the contributions of Rush and Finkelstein to the growth of the industry needed acknowledgment.
Bernie Finkelstein, a leading figure in the Canadian music industry for over 35 years, currently manages Bruce Cockburn, Stephen Fearing and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. He is the founder of True North Records, Canada's oldest independent record company.
