    Rhiannon Giddens, Punch Brothers, Carolina Chocolate Drops' Hubby Jenkins Nominated for Americana Honors & Awards

    The Americana Music Association announced today its nominations for the 2015 Americana Honors & Awards, and among the nominees are several artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Rhiannon Giddens, Punch Brothers, and Carolina Chocolate Drops' own Hubby Jenkins.

    Rhiannon Giddens was nominated for Artist of the Year, joining fellow nominees Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Lucinda Williams, and Lee Ann Womack. Giddens' debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records, is up for Album of the Year, an award that goes to the artist and the producer, in this case T Bone Burnett.

    Multi-instrumentalist Hubby Jenkins, Giddens' band mate in Carolina Chocolate Drops and current touring partner, has been nominated for Instrumentalist of the Year, in a field that also includes Laur Joamets, Greg Leisz, John Leventhal, and Stuart Mathis.

    Punch Brothers have been nominated for Duo/Group of the Year. They released their latest album, The Phosphorescent Blues, also produced by T Bone Burnett, earlier this year as well. Their field includes Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, The Lone Bellow, The Mavericks, and Shovels & Rope. Punch Brothers and Carolina Chocolate Drops were both nominated in this category in 2012.

    The Americana Honors & Awards will return to the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, on September 16, 2015, during AmericanaFest, which runs September 15–20, 2015. Jim Lauderdale will once again host the Honors & Awards, while Buddy Miller (who produced the latest Carolina Chocolate Drops album, Leaving Eden) will lead the All-Star House Band. Tickets to the Honors & Awards show are only available with the purchase of an Americana Music Festival & Conference registration. To register, click here.

    'Tis the season to be jolly with holiday songs! To add our merry to the mix, we've created Nonesuch for the Holidays, a playlist of holiday tunes both classic and soon-to-be-so from The Staves, Chris Thile, Emmylou Harris, Kate & Anna McGarrigle with family and friends, Boston Camerata with eight centuries of Christmas music from Medieval to Renaissance to Baroque, and, of course, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, performed by the New York City Ballet Orchestra—plus, on Spotify, an exclusive from Rostam.

    Chris Thile was joined by fellow Punch Brothers Chris Eldridge and Noam Pikelny as they sat in with the band on his radio show Live From Here at The Town Hall in NYC on Saturday. For a post-broadcast encore, they performed "My Oh My," from Punch Brothers' album The Phosphorescent Blues, with guest Jon Batiste. You can watch it here. Also on the show were St. Vincent (with Thomas Bartlett on piano) and Sara Watkins.
