Nominations for this year’s BBC Folk Awards were announced by Mark Radcliffe on Radio Two’s Folk Show last night, and Jez is among the lucky nominees, in TWO catergories – “Folksinger of the Year” and “Best Song”, – for The Pitmen Poets, a track from his latest CD THE BALLAD BEYOND. The Folk Awards ceremony itself will take place in Cardiff on April 22nd. This is only the second time that Jez has been nominated, the first was for Folksinger of the Year back in 2007.
