In the lead up to this year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards two absolutely living folk legends have been honoured with lifetime achievement awards.

Don McLean, best known for his iconic pub singalong “American Pie” and the oft covered “Vincent”, and Irish trad greats The Dubliners are both being recognised at this year’s award ceremony to be held on the 8th February in the UK.
