The Australian Celtic Music Awards

Judging is well underway for the 2020 Australian Celtic Music Awards. I will be able to give you more information soon about the arrangements that we will make around presenting the Awards and letting you all know who the Finalists and Winners are.

In the short term we are all very disappointed that we won’t be seeing you in May. However, rest assured that we will be back again, bigger and better than ever, in 2021.
