Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
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;
Sir Terry Pratchett
Sir David Attenborough
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.
