Recognising Achievement in 2016

Fatea is proud to announce the winners the Fatea Awards. The awards are nominated by the Fatea team and recognise excellence over 2016.

Each award had 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 2016.

The Winners are listed in bold at the top of their award section, the runner ups are in no particular order. No artist is allowed to win more than one award and all have featured in the magazine during the last year.

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

You can listen to the Awards Show on Mixcloud
