BBC Radio 2's Drivetime Show To Feature Folk Award Best Album Nominees

On BBC Radio 2's Drivetime show this week, presenter Simon Mayo will be featuring each of the Folk Awards' Best Album nominees on a different night throughout the week. And Martin is featured in two of those five albums!
Tonight is the turn of The Full English, a group put together by the wonderful Fay Hield, who herself is rightly nominated for Folk Singer of the year this year and consist of Martin, Seth Lakeman, Nancy Kerr, Sam Sweeney, Fay herself, Rob Harbron and Ben Nicholl. It is a fabulous album and a deserved nominee.
On Wednesday the featured album will be Martin's latest, solo CD, Vagrant Stanzas and we really hope that you will tune in and vote for it in the Best Album category, which is a public vote this year. To vote for an album all you need to do it register at the BBC Folk Awards website ( ) and select the circle next to the album you would like.
Martin would be delighted to have your support of course!
Hope you enjoy this week of folk on BBC Radio 2's Drivetime show. You can also tweet the show to tell them how much you love the music on @simonmayo
