Congratulations to Adrian Crowley who won the fifth annual Choice Music Award last night at Vicar Street. The award is given to the best Irish album of the year (thus Choice Music Prize 2009). His album Season of the Sparks was pronounced the winner by Jim Carroll of the Irish Times, who was the non-voting chair of an extensive judging panel, made up of luminaries from the entire Irish music scene.
Jim asked for predictions yesterday on his On the Record blog, and guess who picked the winner correctly. That’s right, yours truly.
