Baggins 360 Real story of Vin Garbutt & Cambridge (149* d) RE: Real story of Vin Garbutt & Cambridge 28 Jul 07


Every Vin Garbutt I've been to, and I've been to a lot, was a sell out, big gig, little gig, all sell outs. Most Folk clubs in this Country would book him in a minute. As indeed would most Folk Festivals. So what's different about Cammbridge? Are the rest of the Festivals "Right Wing" events, because they are booking this "power crazy man" who wants to keep "women Subjugated" or, are they simply doing what Folk Clubs and Festivals have done for the last twenty odd years, booking a man who is immensely popular with the regular Folk Club going people? I've been to Cambridge three times and each time I came away with the increasing impression, that here was a Festival that was so far up it's own a*** it had stopped being a folk festival. Whilst we are on the subject of offensive lyrics some of the vitriol against men poured out in the songs of some of our more "right on" sisters at the CFF I attended was obscene never mind offensive. I wonder If these are the same people who are now trying their level best to make the word 'Traditional' equate with to the word Fascist?
