Mark Radcliffe presents a full rundown of the nominations for the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, with music from all the nominated artists and tracks.

This week, Mark announces 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.
Once the nominations have been announced in this week's show, 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.
Details of the music played, and a full rundown of the nominations, can be found after the show at www.bbc.co.uk/folk.
