This week, BBC Radio 2 celebrated all things folk, with its annual award show. Held at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on the 30th January, the event was part of the Celtic Connections festival, a winter music festival in Glasgow, which features artists from around the globe alongside the best Scottish talent.
Musician Nic Jones, who only returned to live performance last year following a long rehabilitation after a car crash in the 80s, won folk singer of the year. The 11-piece band Bellowhead won album of the year, Scottish band Lau were named band of the year, while Billy Bragg and Roy Harper were honoured with lifetime achievement awards. A full list of all the winners can be found on the BBC Radio 2 website.
