I would agree with you Ned that one cannot always spot duff information and having made that mistake once I used to try to be a bit circumspect about what I wrote. But at least someone who has at least a passing acquaintance with the folk scene has more chance of spotting it.
And Old Lad, I am not offended. I'm just pleased to know that someone read what I wrote - I just wish you had given some feed back at the time! I'm not sure that I agree with your view though - I tended to devote the first paragraph to what I thought was the 'big' event of the fortnight but then I would try to include everything else I knew was happening over the weeks.
When little is happening in Huddersfield I had to make the judgement of where people would go and I knew they went to Hebden Bridge and the Rockingham Arms but wasn't sure about the Grove or Cross Keys.
I have to admit that folk is getting good coverage with Val Javin but I still contend that the broadness that I tried to provide is not going to be happening any more.
Anyway it's all water under the bridge now.
