BBC Radio2 Folk Awards

Peter presented an award to Danny Thompson at the BBC Radio2 Folk Awards on Monday evening.

“The BBC Folk Awards annually makes special presentations for outstanding contributions to folk music and this year Danny Thompson provided a common link in both Lifetime Achievement Awards. The double bass ace received one of the awards from Genesis founder and world music promoter Peter Gabriel who, along with countless A-list musicians, has gladly “entrusted his bottom end” to Danny over his 50-year professional career.”

You can hear highlights from the event on the Mike Harding show on Wed 7 Feb (1900-2100). This show will be available for 7 days after broadcast on the Radio Player.
