Martin Nominated Four Times In The BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards

Best Album for the wonderful, 'Vagrant Stanzas', Musician Of The Year alongside much admired friends, Will Pound (harmonica) Aidan O' Rourke (fiddle) and Sam Sweeney (everything he can get his hands on), Best Group as part of supergroup, the Full English and ... what's this? A second Best Album nomination with The Full English!
"It's a lovely irony to have both projects up against each other in this year's nominations", says Martin. "I am extremely proud of both CDs and have had some of the best musical times of my life touring both projects. 'Vagrant Stanzas' has to be closest to my heart though and I really hope that the many people who bought it and who have said such lovely things about it, will take the extra bit of time and trouble and vote for it. The BBC Folk Awards is a great showcase for the music that we all love and it's always a really exciting event. This year at the Royal Albert Hall makes it extra special and I'm very pleased to see that one of the great collectors, Cecil Sharp is the first inductee into the new, Hall Of Fame. It's going to be a great night!".
