Joan Prior Award

ACOUSTIC ROUTES, the Wellington Folk Centre, has set up the
JOAN PRIOR AWARD for Young Performers (age 15-25)
We’re delighted to announce that the winner of the Joan Prior Award for 2016 is Hunter Giltrap!

       Joan Prior

JOAN PRIOR was a folk phenomenon in Wellington for thirty years,
playing, singing, and making things happen. After she died in 2010 her
family donated her instruments, recordings and memorabilia to Acoustic
Routes, and this enabled us to set up the award in her name to encourage
young acoustic performers.
