2016: Ian Siegal gains his ninth British Blues Award, this time in the Best Acoustic Artist category, reflecting the success of his recent acoustic albums and tours.

Since the inception of the British Blues Awards six years ago Ian has won best album, best band, best song, best acoustic artist (three times) and male artist of the year (three times). His triplets of awards for acoustic artist and male artist elevate him to the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame in these categories.

Ian was also nominated for 2016 in the acoustic Artist category of the US-based Blues Music Awards, his third nomination in these “Grammys of the Blues” and an unprecedented nod to a non-American artist. Operated out of Memphis by the Blues Foundation, the awards were established in 1980 and formerly called the WC Handy Awards.

His recent acoustic albums are: Wayward Sons, a concert recording with Jimbo Mathus; The Picnic Sessions, a campfire-style collaboration with the Dickinson brothers of North Mississippi Allstars fame, Alvin Youngblood Hart and Jimbo Mathus; and Man & Guitar, a BBC recording at The Albert Hall.

This Autumn Ian is switching attention to his ever-popular band repertoire and his 25th anniversary of professional touring. September sees the band in Austria, October in the Netherlands, and November in the UK.

To mark this anniversary Nugene Records is releasing a limited edition boxed set comprising 38 of Siegal’s songs (on 3 CDs) together with a 72-page illustrated book of lyrics.
