BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2018, Musician Of The Year Nomination For Martin

We are delighted to hear the news that Martin has been nominated for the category of Musician Of The Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Martin has had the most nominations of any performer in the 19 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, an astonishing 32 times, 13 of those as Musician of the Year, winning the particular accolade twice and this year he once again shares the nomination with some incredibly talented friends and colleagues - Tim Edey, Ross Ainslie and Mohsen Amini. We don't envy the judges making that decision!
The BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards is always a highlight of the UK music year and for the first time will be coming from The Waterfront in Belfast, with confirmed performances so far from Paul Brady, Cara Dillon, Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band and Lankum. You can get more information from the link below on how to get tickets but if you can't make it, the ceremony itself will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2 on Weds 4th April.
Good luck everyone and well done to all the nominees!
