Stand out appearances on the album include Folk Singer of the Year nominee Jez Lowe with his song 'The Pitmen Poets' (also up for Best Original Song), Nancy Kerr whose latest release 'Sweet Visitor' has been nominated for 'Best Album' and Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker who are up for both Best Duo and Best Album. Keeping things old school are Best Group nominees The Furrow Collective with their Best Traditional Track offering 'Handsome Molly' and Horizon Award favourites Stick In the Wheel with 'Bedlam'.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
