Tim van Eyken has a fine and haunting voice and plays amazing accompaniments. A well deserved Award.

JL's skin saved I'd say!

I think Bellowhead are inivative from within the tradition but they only just exist as a live act.

Boat Band, Duncan McFarlane and Whapweasel are better live acts to mention only three of many.

Still lets trust that more people enyoy what ever this music is that we call Folk

The link posted by Raindog above is to the press release, which has clearly come out before the ceremony has finished!

The only awards it doesn't seem to cover are Horizon, Group and Best Track Ever (audience vote).

The only one I know so far is Horizon (Kris Drever), but if I get news on the others, I'll post.

And hooray for the award for Nic Jones as well. Not sure I'd agree to Who Knows being my favourite track of all time - never really liked it (but then I'm just one person!)

Agreed...
Way to go Jonesey!
(Would have loved to have heard his speech though. Probably all about insects taking over the world!)
Good for Tim as well...Must get a copy (Oh the Shame)
The others seem the most likely suspects.
Is it true that Martin Carthy is buying Lindisfarne (the island, not the band) for his rapidly mounting collection of gongs.
Could have been worse, forget Bird Flu, at least Myximatosis got a look in!

I love Who Knows Where the Time Goes, but for largely nostalgic reasons, as I remember Sandy Denny, and she did the opening night at a club I ran many moons ago. While the Judy Collins version just blew me away!
It's not though a great song, and I suspect that sentiment had as much to do with it's winning, as anything else.
Well done all though, and especially my own favourite Karine Polwart.

Giok

Can anyone tell me what the definitions are, and who votes on, the two Lifetime Achievement awards and the Good Tradition Award?

They didn't appear on the invitation email that went to the panel, or on the Nominations list, and they don't seem to be part of the Audience vote

I just assumed it was an award for people who had not had one for a while and had not done anything to deserve one.

I think the Good Tradition Award is for people with a good tradition.
Whatever that means.....

Vote? Tom your naivety amazes me.......:-)>

"Can anyone tell me what the definitions are, and who votes on, the two Lifetime Achievement awards and the Good Tradition Award?

They didn't appear on the invitation email that went to the panel, or on the Nominations list, and they don't seem to be part of the Audience vote"

and a chum just asked me if that meant I was unhappy with the results.

Far from it - richly deserving all round IMO - just curious about the process.

I was pleased that the Radio 4 Today programme reported on the folk awards this morning (just before 8.30), and interviewed Seth Lakeman - and Bob Hoskins who was at the do last night, enthused about the folk awards generally and said how much he enjoyed them.   IIRC he used the word "intelligent" in praising the people involved!

I was e-mailed by Hailsham Pavilion promoting a concert that includes J.Moray and referring to his award. He was described as being "the most significant musician since Bob Dylan". I replied saying the sender must be having a laugh or, if not, was in desperate need of counselling. I find the Valium does help. Well, I ask you!!

Cardboard Cutout

31 July 2004 was when I first heard Jim Causley sing - we were both in a lunchtime welcome concert in the Arts Centre at Sidmouth (and missing the launch of Derek Schofield's book).

Jim's time will come, I think (and we've got him booked at Herga in May, which I'm looking forward to). He is an impressive singer!

And we've got him booked for our club in Guildford this Friday, 9th February at 8pm. There are only a few tickets left - bookable via Electric Voices - see the webpage at http://www.themusicinstitute.org.uk
which award was that Ruth?? They're all beginning to merge into one in my mind now?? Was it the first one given out?? I thought Lauren got one - the Seems Like a Lifetime Award - for having to work with Jim?? Oh my head hurts!!

Hope to see some of you at the club on Friday night??

I don't think those were the words of Hailsham Pavilion, but of Australias biggest newspaper! The original article from which the quote was taken is here - http://www.smh.com.au/news/cd-reviews/jim-moray/2006/09/13/1157826995677.html

He was great in Twickenham on Sunday. Maybe you just don't know what you're missing...

I am not sure who that was aimed at Countess. I have seen all 3 in the last year or so and really enjoyed them all for different reasons.

For sheer tunes and excitment I liked th BB and the DMcFs. van Eyken does something else and he does it extremely well and he certainly did not seem smug.

Whatever happened to the Campaign To Get People To Read The Thread Before Posting (or whatever it was called)?

Someone accused Tim of being 'smug' and 'bland', which is probably actionable. Someone else says G Stephens & D McF bands are 'better'. Is this some village produce show where the judges ponder ridiculously and poointlessly between apples, rhubarb and sprouts?

Scrump: I think you are being a bit unfair badgering SmoothOps to publish the nominees votes. They were only counted on November 8, they haven't even had two months to prepare the release you know, and the might cover as much as two sheets of paper. These things take time.
