Radio 2’s annual search for the best young folk musicians is now open for entries!
The Young Folk Award has launched the careers of some of the UK’s leading folk artists, including Bella Hardy, Jim Moray, Lauren MacColl and Jarlath Henderson.
After the initial entries, 10 acts are chosen to attend the Young Folk Award Weekend, which is a residential weekend of workshops led by musicians including the brilliant Nancy Kerr and James Fagan.
The eventual winner will be announced at the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ceremony, and the prize includes a session on the Radio 2 Folk Show and slots at three UK festivals.
The closing date for entries is Friday 4 December 2015.
