Ian - pm me! In spite of the shinanikins and a wide range of mud getting slung in my direction on Mudcat which you can make your own mind up about!! I can offer lots of advice and am happy to, of course you should do it if you love it! There are folkie and other artists out there who need promoters like us to take a chance on them and give them work. I also have some events coming up in July and before - lets see if we can help each other out with promotional stuff if appropriate!
Look forward to hearing from you!
