Join Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe for an inspirational night of live music by some of the UK’s most talented young musicians.

This much-loved event, now celebrating its 20th anniversary, has launched the careers of Wildwood Kin, Blair Dunlop, Bella Hardy, Jim Moray, Jackie Oates and more.

The concert features performances by 10 young acts and a guest appearance by this year’s Young Folk Award mentors: Eliza Carthy and Tim van Eyken.

Based on the performances tonight, judges will select four nominees and a winner for 2018.
