Last night, BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding Show announced the Nominations for the BBC Folk Awards 2008 and Martin has been nominated for Five of them! This year his album, 'Prodigal Son' has made a huge impact and is up for Album of the Year, whilst two tracks from it have been nominated for Best Original Song - 'Never Any Good' and Best Traditional Track - 'Andrew Lammie'. For the sixth year running, Martin has been nominated for Musician of the Year and this year for the second time, he has been nominated for Folk Singer of the Year! Martin is absolutely delighted and we're all really proud of him. The Award's Ceremony is on 4th February 2008, with the highlights being broadcast on the Mike Harding Show on Wed 6th. In addition to that, Martin has been asked to appear on BBC TV's flagship music programme, 'Later With Jools', which we're also really excited about! The programme will be broadcast on the final show of the year, Friday Dec 14th on BBC 2, with Martin performing,'Duncan & Brady' from Prodigal Son.
