Jane Weaver has been nominated in three categories at this year’s Association Of Independent Music Awards.

Weaver released her new album Modern Kosmology in May this year via Fire Records and for that she’s received a nomination for Independent Album Of The Year.

She’s also been shortlisted for Independent Track Of The Year for Slow Motion and in the Independent Breakthrough Of The Year category.

Weaver exclusively tells Prog: “I learn of this joyous news whilst listening to Bo Hansson in the heart of Alan Stivell’s rural Brittany.

“So in the words of the man himself, ‘Ma daoulagad entanet n’o deus mui a zaeloù’ – my swollen eyes have no more tears.”

The ceremony will take place at The Brewery, Clerkenwell, on September 5, with tickets for the night available via the official AIM website.

In June, Weaver released a live eight-song performance video which was filmed at the Old Granada Studios in Manchester.

Weaver will head out on the road later this month for dates across the UK and Ireland. Find a full list of her upcoming live shows below.
