Folk Alliance Australia presents “Services to Australian Folk Music Award 2021” to John Thompson.
Folk Alliance Australia is currently considering the Awards we present to members of our community and are in the process of launching a program of national folk awards.
When singer John Thompson’s ill health was called to our attention we moved to recognise his contributions to folk music by making him the inaugural recipient of our discretionary Award for Services to the Folk music community. This was awarded 4 Feb 2021 the same day as his passing.
