In December 2013 I had the privilege of playing guitar on the new Duhks album, recorded at the Humble Abode studios with musical comrades Mike and Ruthy. I’m pleased to announce I’ll be performing with the Duhks in 2014. For an up-to-date list of the tour dates, as well as more info on their upcoming album (and how to support it) visit the Duhks website.
Hey, it’s with gratitude and humility we announce that Child Ballads has been nominated for two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards: Best Album, and Best Traditional Track “Willie Of Winsbury.” So happy to be included among our friends and fellow nominees. Best wishes and luck to everyone!
Every year since 1986 fRoots has polled experts in the UK and worldwide to decide the Album Of The Year in the fields of music which we champion – folk, roots and world music. With over 300 writers, broadcasters and activists on the panel, the fRoots Critics Poll For Albums Of The Year is long established as the most extensively researched and prestigious annual poll of its kind, the de facto flagship industry award.
Along the way, we added a separate poll category for Reissues & Compilations and more recently a Best Packaged Album category. Here are all the winners down the years.
Jefferson and Eamon O’Leary will be performing as The Murphy Beds at the 2013 Summer Hoot, founded by dear friends Mike and Ruthy. We’re playing two sets: Saturday at 3:30, then a special midnight set in the music hall. Check it:
