Obituary: Pegi Cecconi Had an Immense Impact on the Canadian Music Industry

This week we also acknowledge the passing of folk and rock drummer Gerry Conway, Australian/Canadian Hoodoo Gurus manager Michael McMartin and Ministry/R.E.M. drummer Bill Rieflin.

Pegi (Margaret Anne) Cecconi, a trailblazing Canadian booking agent and record label executive, died on March 28, at age 70. She had been battling PSP (Progressive Supernuclear Palsy).

Her immense impact on the Canadian music industry over almost five decades was rightfully recognized in 2020 when she received the Walt Grealis Special Achievement Award at the Juno Awards, only the third woman to have received that prestigious honour.
