2015 Album Awards

Here are the FolkWords Album Awards - the winners and runners up for 2015. Naturally, a huge 'thank you' to the artists that sent their albums to FolkWords over the past year, to the FolkWords team of reviewers, to our technical support and the folk that take the time to read our ramblings ... we are forever grateful. Most importantly, huge congratulations to the winners and runners up. That's all for 2015, a tough-in-places year but also a year that delivered some outstanding albums.

Same awards, same time next year, hope to see you again.
