As part of our first awards festival, we have created a special award to recognise new and emerging artists on the UK Americana scene.
It is fitting that this award bears the name of one of the UK’s most vocal champions of new music. Bob Harris has had a long and illustrious career as a broadcaster that has seen him discover and promote previously undiscovered music spanning over four decades at the forefront of music media.
The first Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award will be presented to Liverpudlian singer songwriter Robert Vincent at the first UK Americana Awards in February.
“I am so impressed with Robert’s music. Strong songs laced with blues and country. He is the real deal” Bob Harris
