Veteran musician Nic Jones sealed his comeback after winning folk singer of the year at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
The 66-year-old Brit scooped the top prize at a ceremony in Glasgow, Scotland on Wednesday (30Jan13), accepting the trophy from actress and musician Clare Grogan.
The folk star was severely injured and sustained brain damage in a 1982 car crash, but he returned to the festival scene last year (12) after undergoing rehabilitation.
In his speech, Jones thanked singer Belinda O'Hooley, who accompanied him on his latest tour, and paid a touching tribute to his supportive wife Julia.
He told the crowd, "I'd like to thank people who helped me. One is Belinda O'Hooley, and also my son Joe, who's a funky guitar player and thanks to all the people who have run the festivals where we've been performing. It's been great. Also, I'd like to thank my ultimate nurse, my wife Julia."
Other big winners included Billy Bragg, who was honoured for his contribution to traditional music, as well as fiddle player Aly Bain, Roy Harper and songwriter Dougie MACLean, who took home lifetime achievement awards.
