Errol Ranville

Based In: Winnipeg, MB

Born in Ste. Rose du Lac, Manitoba Errol was a natural entertainer, taking to the stage, guitar in hand, at the early age of 8.  Somewhere along the way Errol gained the family nickname “C-Weed“, and the rest is history. The C-Weed Band’s release of Robbie Robertson’s song Evangeline from their album entitled The Finest You Can Buy, rose to #1 on the Canadian Country Radio charts thus earning the first of several C-Weed Band Juno Award nominations. Two years later the C-Weed band struck gold again as the song High and Dry, written by Jagger-Richards, also went #1 on the Country Music charts. Magic in the Music was nominated for a Juno Award in 1985 & 1986. Errol served as Executive Producer for Manito Ahbee, and the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards in 2006 & 2007, in which he created highly successful, internationally acclaimed shows. In April 2005 Errol was inducted into the Aboriginal Hall of Fame.
