The BBMA’s Jan Jerrold Award is made annually to recognise individuals who have made a significant contribution to the promotion of Bluegrass in the UK and who have worked consistently to increase awareness and enjoyment of the music.
Recommendations for the award are received from the BBMA membership, and the committee makes its selection from the list of candidates in the month preceding each year’s AGM, which this year will be held at the Battlefield Bluegrass Festival 20th-23rd July.
If you consider that you know someone who is deserving of the award, please let us have your nomination(s) together with your reasons for nominating them, by email to email@example.com
