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.

    The first recording of Steve Reich’s Runner and Music for Ensemble and Orchestra, performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conducted by Susanna Mälkki, released on CD and digitally on Nonesuch Records in September, is now available on vinyl. The New York Times calls Runner "a calmly luminous orchestral piece with the pulsating, propulsive rhythms that animate much of Mr. Reich’s music." The San Francisco Chronicle says that Music for Ensemble and Orchestra "is a beautiful and dramatically charged masterpiece, but its impact goes even further than that."
