The nominees for this year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards have been announced and we’re thrilled to see several of our upcoming performers among them.

Megson (17 Mar) and O’Hooley and Tidow (8 Apr) are both up for the Best Duo award, whilst Rachel Newton (9 Jun) has been nominated for Musician of the Year. Year of the Cat singer Al Stewart (22 Apr) will be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement award.

This year’s inductee into the Radio 2 Folk Awards Hall of Fame will be the great Woody Guthrie – catch Will Kaufman’s unbeatable tribute to him here 1 Apr.

Best of luck to the nominees. The awards will be broadcast live from the BBC Radio 2 website on Wed 2 Apr from 7.30pm.
