GUEST,Eric Review: Folk Awards - Mike Harding (306* d) RE: Review: Folk Awards - Mike Harding 25 Nov 06

This thread [like may others] reminds me why I dip into mudcat instead of being a regular visitor. There is a load of music out in the world which gets called folk or people call folk because they are not able to think of another label [the US seems to have similar problems to the UK with this]. Most of it I like and it is much better [to me] than the stuff that ends up in the so called pop or rock domain. I am just glad it is available and I do not see why people are continually knocking it because it isn't quite this or that. What if we did not have the Mike Harding programme or the awards? Would we be better off? I doubt it but I know some of the people who write to this list would really like to keep it all in their own dark room and are worried if other people share it. Music is for enjoyment. i had never heard of SOH until recently but I saw them on Sunday in Gateshead and thought they [and Martyn Joseph their support] were great and they were certainly what i think of as folk music.

Eric [and definitely not the Red]
