BBC FOLK AWARDS
NEWS - 06/04/2017

Barbara was a guest this week at the Radio 2 Folk Awards which took place at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Amongst the live performances was a powerful and moving piece taken from the Ballads of Child Migration, which tells the story of the enforced migration of over 100,000 children to Australia and Canada between 1863 and 1970. The specially-curated performance was narrated by Barbara with original songs performed by Kris Drever, Jez Lowe, While & Matthews, Boo Hewerdine, O'Hooley & Tidow, John McCusker, Andy Cutting and Michael McGoldrick.

The performance is now available to view online here and edited highlights (including all the songs from the show) will be broadcast on TV on BBC Four on Sunday 9th April at 10.00 pm.

In addition, the full awards ceremony as broadcast on BBC Radio 2 is now available to listen to online here
