Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
I've heard of most of them although they wouldn't necessarily all be my choice although some might be at a different time or in another category.

As Kenny says, we have them up here too. I used to get irritated by them but no more. As far as I'm concerned, I don't take such things that seriously and prefer to base my own likes and dislikes on what I've actually heard and experienced myself. Yes, pointers can also be useful especially for discovering new artists, music, material etc. However, these can come from a variety of sources. I don't have to be directed by "award nominations.
