jimL The National Trust. Folk CD (89* d) RE: The National Trust. Folk CD 12 Jun 07

greg stephens quoth amongst other stuff :-

... shouldn't we perhaps also consider getting them to stock recordings of traditional singers and players for example? ...
a trip round an NT property in Northumberland might include an opportunity to buy a Billy Pigg CD ...

Well, Billy Pigg just maybe, though if you are wanting to draw in the general public, you'd go for "RKathryn" surely. As to singers, I have a large selection of source recordings, vanishingly few of which could remotely be called entertaining, and which would drive joe public into fits of the gibbering heeby-jeebies.

.. Arctic Monkeys and Show of Hands in NT shops may be coming, but is that time now?

Yikes. Now there's a bizarre juxtapostion. I think Phil & Steve are just the sort of thing might turn the public on to folk music. Trying to sell them an 80 year old bloke singing "The Maid of Auastralia" would be like trying to make them appreciate the pointing on Hadrian's wall on the worst day in November.
