Don McLean Lifetime Achievement Award
Don McLean was presented with his BBC lifetime achievement award on February 8th in a show broadcast live on British TV and worldwide via BBC radio. Don performed two songs - "And I Love You So" and "Homeless Brother" - which drew a major reaction and for a while Don was 'trending' on Twitter!
Don said: "The UK audience has been among the most loyal for over 40 years and without them certainly I wouldn't be considered for this honour, so I thank the BBC and I thank the British public."
Earlier in the evening Don was interviewed and performed live versions of Castles in the Air and Everyday on the Simon Mayo Drivetime show on radio 2.
Watch Don's performance of "Homeless Brother" at the Folk Awards.
The video will be available until Saturday 10 March, 11.59pm.
