Sleepy Rosie Folk Singing Competitions? (42) RE: Folk Singing Competitions? 24 Mar 09

"I feel that music should not be competitive because it is far too subjective. In order for judges to adjudicate a performance fairly it is often required that a performer do the same number in exactly the same way. I believe this format is used in mods, piping, fiddle, dancing competitions etc."

yeah, I don't know that I like the idea of 'judges' either. Though as far as I'm aware the one in Suffolk is democratic and determined by votes cast from the pub floor.

Still, personally I think it actually sounds like an evenings fun!
In a village fete egg and spoon race kinda way, rather than a breakdown inducing young musician of the year kinda way.

Though having seen some of the comments on threads here maybe I shouldn't feel so optimistic.. ;-)
