IMA Nominees for 2013

Irish Music Award Nominees

There are quite a few familiar names on the lists this year as nominees for the various categories of the Irish Music Association‘s annual Irish Music Awards. Here, from their website, are the nominees for each category. Only paid members of the IMA may vote, so if you wish to vote in these awards, you will need to be a ‘patron’ member, which costs $15 and lasts for a full year. Voting begins today, and ends January 12th. For more information see the IMA website.
