Several winners at the inaugural Northern Music Awards have been confirmed. Amongst the winners is Salford-born indie star Tim Burgess, who will pick up the Northern Music Award. 

Burgess has been a regular name on the Northern music scene since the early 1990s. As well as five solo albums, he has been involved with 13 records with band The Charlatans. More recently, his ingenious Listening Parties have brought people together with artists online to enjoy music together in a revolutionary way.

The awards have been designed to celebrate all that is good about music in the North of England. The ceremony will take place at Manchester’s Albert Hall on Tuesday April 23.

The importance of live music events are also set to be celebrated by the Northern Music Awards. Some of the many brilliant music festivals across the North have been shortlisted on the Festival of the Year award. 

 The shortlist features Moovin (Stockport), Kendal Calling (Cumbria), Sounds from the Other City (Salford), TramLines (Sheffield) and Beat-Herder (Lancashire). This is the only publicly-voted award, so keep an eye out for your chance to have a say. 

There will also be an award for Inspirational Venue of the Year. 10 venues across the North have been shortlisted in this with several in Manchester including Night and Day, Albert Hall, Band on the Wall and New Century Hall.

Tim Burgess said: “It’s incredible to be recognised with the inaugural Northern Music Award. Music is important on so many levels, and I’m a firm believer in the unique way that it can connect people. It means a lot to me to be able to support the great work of Nordoff and Robbins, who use music therapy to unlock life for some of the most vulnerable people in society – and through the funds raised by everyone coming along to the Northern Music Awards we’ll be opening up music therapy to even more people across the North.”
