    Rich Gilligan

    Congratulations to Olivia Chaney, who has been nominated for Folk Singer of the Year in the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The nominees were announced on Mark Radcliffe's Radio 2 The Folk Show tonight. The 20th annual Folk Awards will take place at Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on October 16, during the Manchester Folk Festival. Shortly thereafter, Chaney will perform at Kings Place in London on October 19.

    Olivia Chaney's latest album, Shelter, released last year on Nonesuch, landed on Best Albums of 2018 lists from fRoots critics, Uncut, and Mojo. Uncut called it "transcendent,” while the Observer declared it “an elegant, luminous album.”

    To pick up a copy of Shelter, head to your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; it can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

Preorders from the Nonesuch and Punch Brothers stores include a limited-edition print signed by the band while supplies last.
