Ewan MacColl will be inducted into the Folk Awards Hall of Fame in this, his centenary year. Born in Salford in 1915 to Scottish parents, he would go on to be one of Britain's greatest ever songwriters. His pioneering and idealistic work in folk music, theatre and radio made him a hugely influential character in his lifetime and beyond it.

Dr. Meredydd Evans passed away in February 2015 at the age of 95. His wide-ranging contributions as a singer, historian, broadcaster and Welsh language campaigner made him a significant, respected and popular figure across Welsh culture. He will be posthumously honoured with the Good Tradition Award.
