MY BARNSLEY MUSIC AWARDS: PART 2 – FAVOURITE GROUP, SOLO ARTIST, LIVE ACT & NEW ACT

bma-logo-fwThis year’s Barnsley Music Awards will take place on Friday 4th December at the Barnsley Rock & Blues Venues (last year’s winner of favourite live music venue). Voting for the awards opened on 2nd November. You can cast your vote by visiting http://goo.gl/forms/ZN7ywRC80T.
To celebrate the occasion, I thought that I would take the opportunity to look back at my own musical highlights of 2015.

In my first of three articles, I looked at my favourite New Song, Album, EP and Video of 2015. You can view those here. In this article, I will have a look at my favourite Group, Solo Artist, Live Act and New Act.

Each list will be topped by my overall favourite, alongwith the rest of my top five, followed by the rest of the shortlist in alphabetical order.
