Vote in the What's On awards

By West Briton  |  Posted: November 15, 2012

  • The singular talents of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, pictured at The Acorn, Penzance, top, and Blur's Graham Coxon, above, who played Falmouth's Princess Pavilion, are among What's On's highlights of the year. Kezia's, left, reputation has grown even more so since taking the best female title last year.

RATHER frighteningly it's already that time of the year – when I ask you to vote in the What's On Music Awards, writes Lee Trewhela.

For the past couple of years I've invited musicians, promoters, band managers, producers and journalists to vote for their musical highlights of the year in Cornwall.

This year I'm opening it up to readers too.

So get your thinking hats on and send me your choices for the following categories:

Best large venue

Best small venue

Best indie band

Best rock band

Best covers band

Best festival/event

Best male

Best female

Best gig by a local act

Best gig by a name act

Best classical (concert or act)

Best jazz (act / event / club)

Best folk (act / event / club)

Best regular night

Best album/EP/download

Person of the year

Among the winners last year were the Princess Pavilion in Falmouth, Bunters in Truro, Crowns, Everything Burns, Boardmasters, Ruarri Joseph, Kezia, PJP Band, Flaming Lips, Ben Howard, Adam Ant and promoter Frank Pellow of Dueling Kazoos.

Obviously, if Alt-J at the Princess Pavilion, Falmouth, and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy at The Acorn, Penzance, don't figure I will be scrapping the whole affair ….

E-mail your choices to LTrewhela@c-dm.co.uk by Monday , December 3.
