The awards show on Wednesday 5th April will also include the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to Al Stewart.

This year's inductee into the Radio 2 Folk Awards Hall of Fame will be the legendary Woody Guthrie.

And 10 celebs you didn't know were folk fans;
Steven Mangan
Martin Freeman
Bruce Dickinson
Stephen Fry
Sir Terry Pratchett
Sir David Attenborough
Graham Coxon
David Gray
Ruth Jones
Charles Dance

To be honest, I haven't spotted many at our local folk club. Let's see which are chosen to present the prizes this year.

I can agree with the choice of Woody Guthrie. And I grew up strumming along to Al Stewart and Jimmy Page.

But I recently bought an Al Stewart compilation CD to play in the car. It was the longest journey in my life.

And surely there must be an award for Jo Cox.
