After a whole morning of thorough (as thorough as work allowed) here are my calls for some of the categories in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012...
FOLK SINGER OF THE YEAR
This was a pretty easy call
Tougher, I actually liked three of the four nominees from my cursory poke around
Jonny & Lucy
Close run thing with Jackie Oates' Saturnine but I should go for...
Last - The Unthanks
Which means I don't feel wrong for giving...
BEST ORIGINAL SONG
The Herring Girl - Bella Hardy
BEST TRADITIONAL TRACK
Maids When You’re Young - Lucy Ward
