That's a lovely website Spaw, and I wish I could get to see the museum.

The thing is, there's still so much good stuff being made by carvers and singers and musicians and painters, that noone in the big media is ever going to tell us about. Thee's a bright spotlight shines on some little bits of the stage, and the peiople who control it like to shine it most of the time on rubbish, and that's where the money goes, and that's seen as making it important. But meantime the good stuff is still happening.

Places like Mudcat cancel that out a bit. More important than the money is getting respect.
