What is not at issue is Seth's value and importance in the resurgence of folk and acoustic music in this country - there can be no doubting his success. What is in question is the validity of one of his songs that was chosen by other people, not him, for inclusion in an award category. He will do well, I'm sure, at these awards and others too, and good luck to him. But please don't confuse the issues or doubt the value and importance of other artists working at the forefront.
Would you still be feeling this way if one of your other favoured artists happened to be fifth placed in the nomination and therefore deprived of the recognition and possibly an award that could mean a more secure future?
Is is great that kids can go and shake their ass to Seth. There will, no doubt, be occasions when listening to mother's advice will be appreciated at a concert too.
