Subject: RE: English Dance & Song Mag
My bias is purely personal, and based on what I'm into reading, and there is always a small amount in EDS that I'm very interested in, I just don't find it really floats my boat on balance. That was probably true under the previous ed! As a member I personally preferred the lsitings and obits out of the main mag and in the quarterly, but that's personal too.
As it stands, very close friends are current contributors and I have no axe to grind with the current, past, or future editor. However, I do feel it is pretty low on street cred, and whilst I'd be the last person to argue for a purely commercial approach the current issue does not present an evangelical face to the world.
I'm not a fan of "rival" folk mags and think EDS has lots to offer, but it is hiding its light under a bushel, so to speak.
