For nearly 30 years, the Boston Music Awards have celebrated all the great music that emanates from, well, Boston. This year’s event was held last week and a number of Twangville faves walked out as winners. The Silks were selected blues artist of the year while Julie Rhodes took the best new artist crown. Old Jack received the best live ongoing residency for regularly rocking the Lizard Lounge.
Perpetual nominees Dan Blakeslee (a 2014 folk artist winner) and Session Americana (always the bridesmaid, never the bride), along with popster Nate Leavitt, may not have garnered awards but certainly got Twangville’s vote.
Here is a video playlist to celebrate a few of Boston’s finest.
