2019 International Folk Music Awards

International Folk Music Awards: Best Of Nominees Announced

Last year brought the folk music world a wide range of fantastic music, from protest songs and songwriting collaborations with military veterans to celebrations of the historic and ongoing contributions of the Indigenous music community. In fact, we may even go as far to say that we’re currently in the middle of a new folk music renaissance.

The 2019 International Folk Music Awards Best Of nominees include some of the greatest artists doing work in the folk music scene right now. Categories include Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. Finalists are compiled from “Best of 2018” radio and print media lists in the US, Canada, the UK, EU, and Australia in addition to the year-end NACC Folk and  Folk DJ chart.

Voting is open from January 7, 2019 to January 17, 2019. Folk Alliance International members can vote here. Learn more about FAI membership here.

The International Folk Music Awards (IFMAs) will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, from 6-8pm at Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montréal, Québec (during the Folk Alliance International Conference).
