The Categories Explained

  • Eligible in the Best Artist category are single artists who work with - or without - a band, and whose album received a Top of the World in Songlines during 2016 (issues #115-#124 inclusive). Artists must be living. Re-issued albums are not eligible, but ‘Best Of’ single artist compilations are.

  • Best Group could include any group who had a Top of the World album in Songlines in 2016, issues #115-124 inclusive. Note a duo counts as a Group eg Amadou & Mariam or Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman.
