Shropshire band Whalebone are thrilled to discover their latest album is being considered in four categories for this year’s Grammy Awards. Whalebone’s ‘Runes’ album is included in the Best Folk Album list and Album of the Year whilst two tracks from the album are in contention for Best Instrumental Arrangement and Best Instrumental Composition.
“It’s surreal to see our name included in a list alongside those of so many musicians that have influenced and inspired us – Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler and Nigel Kennedy are just a few that we find ourselves lining up with,” said lead guitarist Steve Downs. The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on January 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
