This week, Mark announced the nominations for the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and plays music by all of the nominated artists. An extensive panel of folk music professionals have cast their votes, and tonight Mark reveals the top four acts in each of the categories – including Best Album, Folk Singer of the Year and the Horizon Award for the best emerging act. The panel will vote again to establish the winner in each category. The results will then be announced at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ceremony on 19 February 2014 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

In this clip, Mark talks to Colin Irwin (fRoots, MOJO, The Guardian) about the nominations.
