Recognising Achievement in 2019

Fatea is proud to announce the shortlists for the Fatea Awards. The awards are nominated by the Fatea team and recognise excellence over 2019.

Each award has a shortlist of three and we congratulate all artists on our shortlist as well as the many others that were nominated and every artist and band that released music or performed live during 2019.

No artist is allowed to win more than one award and all have featured in the magazine during the last year. The nominations are listed in alphabetical order

We also have three special awards. The Tradition Award is presented to the act or organisation that have traditional folk at their root and use it to inspire new songs, tunes and arrangements in the traditional spirit. The Innovation Award is presented for a context or concept that widens the appeal of roots based music or brings a different thought process to it. The Lifetime Achievement Award speaks for its self and is announced on the night

The winners of the Fatea Awards will be announced during a two hour radio special, this year hosted by Blues & Roots Radio on January 10th at 8PM(GMT).
