Not Perfect. Never Claimed To Be.

As far as I'm concerned, the omission of Edward II's "Manchester's Improving Daily" from BBC R2 Folk Awards Best Album nominations is a complete travesty.

I must admit that there seem to be a number of glaring omissions, but then there are many nominations I have never heard, so who am I to say they do not deserve to be in the running.
In many ways it is refreshing to see that it is not just the usual suspects appearing in the list, as that is a frequent complaint with regard to thr R2 Folk Awards.


...but really, literally, nothing I have heard.  Undecided

Lifetime Award for Al Stewart, apparently.


Deserved too. Lots of other people have had one. It's his turn.

Al's on  tour this year, but it's getting rather expensive to see him, and I've seen a few of his shows over the years.

FOLK SINGER OF THE YEAR

    Daoiri Farrell
    
    

HORIZON AWARD

    Daoiri Farrell
    


BEST TRADITIONAL TRACK

    
    Van Diemen's Land by Daoiri Farrell
    




There is not a single thing on that list that I have heard, or for the most part heard of.



I saw him a couple of times last year, would like to see him again. An enjoyably entertaining blighter.

I would also recommend Mike Harding's continuing folk show - weekly on sundays (I always listen as a podcast):

Agreed re Ange & Lukas - they should definitely be on the list somewhere.  Sorry not to see The Changing Room on there either.

Yes, Changing room are another excellent live act.

Now the Folk Awards are no longer the "closed shop" of a few years ago, however, there's a good chance we'll see Changing Room / Ange & Lucas in the lists another year. Soon, I hope,

Ange definitely - probably Horizon Award, but Changing Room? What sets them apart from the others?
