Ian Siegal has scored his eighth British Blues Award. He was recently announced Acoustic Artist of the year in the BBA 2015 awards. Also, his album Man & Guitar recorded by the BBC at The Albert Hall was runner up in the Best Album category to the Wilko Johnson/Roger Daltry album Going Back Home.
Already in the British Blues Hall of Fame (having won Male Vocalist three times), Siegal has won in no less than five categories including Album, song and Band.
These eight awards join European Blues Awards Male vocalist of the year and two nominations in the Blues Music Awards (2013 & 21012) for contemporary Blues Album of the Year. Administered by the Blues Foundation in Memphis TN, the Blues Music Awards are the most prestigious in the Blues calendar. Siegal is the only British artist to have been nominated in the contemporary category in the history of the awards.
And let’s not forget numerous magazine awards including MOJO’s Blues Album of the Year in 2014 and 2009.
