Subject: RE: Compering/ MCing at a folk club
I can remember being introduced at a folk festival,by a professional performer, and now Dick Miles. what a useless introduction, it tells the audience nothing.
and another occasion at Whitby festival, heres Dick Miles whos been around since the year dot, well thanks, you got my name right, but thats all.
   I have had to introduce people I dont like, BUT I always try and give them a good introduction,keep it short,state what theyve done, be positive, and make the audience feel theyre going to enjoy what theyre about to hear.
the mcs job is to make sure whatever situation, workshop, the artist etc that it goes well.
