Folk Music Ontario has just announced the nominees for the Ontario Folk Music Awards.

This year, the categories have been rearranged, and the once-lengthy list of Songs from the Heart award categories – children’s, political, blues, etc. – has been replaced by a single Song of the Year award, as part of a simple line-up of four awards:  song, album, performing artist and recording artist of the year.

The awards will be handed out at a Sunday afternoon event at the end of the FMO conference, which runs from Oct. 13 to 16 in London.
