Thread Name: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Does anyone know where the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards are being presented this year? I contacted various people last year to make a case for the awards being made here in Hull to fit in with our being the UK's City of year of Culture for 2017. I got a positive initial response from the EFDSS and from the Hull-based organizers of the 2017 events, but I have heard nothing for a long time. I was hoping that having the awards made here in Hull might provide a platform for the city to celebrate the achievements of the Waterson family and some of the other great singers who lived in Hull in the 60's and 70's.But I guess the awards are to come from somewhere else?
