The National Rural Touring Forum are making an award celebrating the best Music Performance of the Year, and it would absolutely make our year to be considered for this.

NRTF say: "We would like to acknowledge the wonderful singing and playing that makes up a large part of rural touring. Nominate an individual, a band, a choir or a company".

Nominations can be made by anyone who hosted a show or who was an audience member.

Would you nominate Whalebone for Music Performance of the Year? We'd be very grateful if you would and could take a moment to put us forward for the award. To nominate, please click here: NOMINATE WHALEBONE FOR MUSIC PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR

More information about all the awards can be found at

Nominations close on Thursday 26th April.

Thank you!

Nominate Whalebone for Rural Touring Awards 2018

Whalebone at Yarpole Church - Live at St Leonard's

Wonderful weekend playing in Herefordshire - this pic taken on Saturday night at the fantastic Yarpole Church - Friday night we played in Eaton Bishop Village Hall. Thanks to all that came out to see us :)

We have compiled a new Spotify playlist of Whalebone tunes from our back catalogue that help you unwind and relax called Instrumental Mellow Chill - we've also included some other instrumental tunes by other artists we're listening to at the moment. So if you fancy a chillout, click the link HERE and have a listen. A “Follow” on Spotify is a great way to show support for an artist whose music you love. When you save our music to your own playlists it really helps get our music out into the world, so feel free to create your own playlists and include us on them :)
