Clannad and English folk singer Martin Carthy have been announced today (January 28) as the recipients of Lifetime Achievement awards at this year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The awards will be presented to BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014 at London’s Royal Albert Hall on February 19.
Clannad said:"We are absolutely honoured to be recognised in this way by the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The BBC have been such great supporters of us since we first broke through in the UK with Theme From Harry's Game. We are really looking forward to being part of the big night at the Royal Albert Hall."
