"And above all its why the kids won't be twisting the night away at Ruth's Tamla Motown 'Grab a Granny' disco."
Will they not, Al? Do you even know who's in the band, or what size or age of crowd we attract to these events? Have you ever been to one? It's a ceilidh, by the way, not a disco, but there are plenty of pictures around on the net of last year's silent ceilidh and disco to give you a sense of the general age range we attract to Bulverton events.
"I was accused on the thread that dare not say its name, of not listening to other artists."
You were accused of dismissing, without even listening to them, a number of internationally significant bands as only suitable for the primary school parent's evening. You never did respond to say whether you were familiar with the music of *any* of the bands in question before you made your assertion.
I'm sorry Al, but your posts increasingly come across as the rantings of an embittered old man who has not a clue what is actually happening out there on the folk scene, but is only aware of his own (and a few of his mates')lack of bookings. You hearkened back to the days when some of your old favourites were filling folk clubs. The events that we host at the Bulverton attract up to a thousand people at a time, with a substantial proportion of them under 30 years of age. I'm not sure any folk club ever had that sort of capacity.
