Latest news »9Bach and The Gloaming triumph at the Folk Awards
It was a special night for Real World Records artists The Gloaming and 9Bach at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards last night, with both bands coming away with an award - Best Traditional Song (The Gloaming) and Best Album (9Bach).
The evening was particularly memorable for 9Bach. Not only did they pick up the coveted award of Best Album for their second album Tincian - the first Welsh act to win a Folk Award of any description - they also closed the show with a powerful performance of the song 'Ffarwel' where the band were joined on-stage by the massed voices of the Penrhyn Male Voice Choir Choir (a 50-strong male choir).
The whole awards were broadcast live on BBC Radio 2 and you can listen again to the show here.
Many congratulations to both The Gloaming and 9Bach from everyone at Real World Records, we're really proud of you both!
