BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards & the National Rural Touring Awards
April 7, 2017
We hope this email finds you well and enjoying the beginnings of Spring wherever it finds you! Here's a little round-up of our latest news and concert dates - starting with...
The BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards!
So - what an exciting few months it's been! It seems like it was only yesterday that Jay and I had our R&R in South America so pleasantly interrupted with news of our nomination in the Horizon category for 'Best Emerging Artist' at this year's BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. If you were listening or watching (or there!) you may well have heard by now that we didn't win our category. To be honest - we're not too disappointed though. The nomination itself felt like a pretty big win already! We've had so many messages of support over the last few weeks, though - and it really means a lot, so thank you!!
2017 National Rural Touring Awards - We Need Your Help!
So - 2016/17 has been a pretty good year for awards nominations for us...but we're hoping to bag one more! :) This one, however, relies on your help! The National Rural Touring Forum is organising it's first 'Rural Touring Awards' this year and, as it relies on a public nominations, we'd be absolutely thrilled if you'd consider voting for us in:
Category 2: Most innovative and / or inspiraotional show seen at a village or community hall
If you've seen us at an Artsreach, Carn to Cove, Villages in Action or Wiltshire Rural Touring event you can follow the link below and it only takes a couple of minutes. You can also vote in as many of the other categories as you want - or leave them blank if they don't apply to you.
Jay and I have found that rural touring has become a really important part of our lives over the last few years - and we consider it a real privilege to be able to help play our part in bringing the arts into rural communities. We'd love to continue doing even more rural touring events around the country, and a nomination in an awards ceremony like this would be an amazing way for us to help spread the word about Ninebarrow to other parts of the rural touring community! :)
So aside from all this excitement, we've got a busy rest of the year coming up! As ever, all of our upcoming shows are over on the gigs page. Click here to be transported!
So that's it for now! Thanks so much for your continued support - and we'll look forward to seeing you soon!
