Cast your vote for the Best Folk Album of the Year
I'm pure delighted to be associated with two of the five shortlisted Albums of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The wonderful musicians and women of Songs of Separation are in there for our arranged-and-recorded-in-less-than-a-week adventure epic on the Isle of Eigg. A real commendation of the work of team leader Jenny Hill.
We are also up for Best Traditional Track for "Echo Mocks The Corncrake" feat. an actual corncrake too. You can hear it here.
Martin Green's beautiful, timely "Flit", for which I wrote four songs on the theme of human migration, is up for best album too (and for Best Original Track for the gorgeous "Roll Away" by Martin and Anais Mitchell). Hurray! Wee office party coming up.
Good luck to all the nominees and thanks for making such beautiful music.
