Hancock Award - (Archive)


"Harpsong" won a Hancock Award for Best Original Song in 2010, and I was given the award at the bar at this year’s Fairport’s Cropredy Convention. It took that long because I haven’t done any live gigs where it could be presented. I was obviously really delighted to finally get my hands on it and accepted it on behalf of myself, Alistair Murphy and Tim Bowness who between us created the song

voted for by the members of the Folk Corporation "Talkawhile" Bulletin Board, in memory of their much loved colleague Carey "Ces" Hancock. His love of folk (and rock) music produced many lively debates and humorous opinions (mostly his). It is in the spirit of Carey’s devotion to live and recorded music of many genres and his appreciation of the talents that created it, that this award is given

Isn’t that lovely?
Look! It glows
