This just in from Dan Milner!

I just got some potentially good news from Smithsonian.  Happy to report that Irish Pirate Ballads is one of 5 recordings to receive a nomination in the Indie Music Awards “World Traditional” category.

Smithsonian Folkways tells me there are actually two trophys in this category.  One, an academy-like award conferred by professionals; and the other a popular vote award.  I know nothing about the ins and outs of this but they sent along the webpage with the suggestion that I spread the word.  The page is  http://www.independentmusicawards.com/imanominee/default.aspx?maincat=6&yr=2010&scat=19

In the days of Tammany Hall, when “our people” fought for their place in the sun, the cry was “Vote early and vote often!”  Need I say more.  If you have time, perhaps you could pass the suggestion along.  Thanks in advance.

Congrats Dan!  Now everyone out there, get to work!
