AmericanaFest and the UK Americana Awards are an annual treat with tremendous showcases and recognition of achievements with the awards show. This year the live performances are not possible, so it has gone online. You can see details and buy tickets on the Americana Music Association UK website https://theamauk.org/
On the second hour of this week's Country and Roots I will be previewing some of these performances with music by Elvis Costello, Steve Earle, Emma Swift, Lucinda Williams, Jason Isbell, The Mavericks, Ida Mae and many more. The first hour will be the usual mix of classic country tracks and great new releases, with music from Dolly Parton, The Highwomen, David Byrne and many more.
