No Diane, it was Captain Ginger who said "a beacon of excellence". You said "well-run and an excellent shop window for trad music.".

I do seem to recall someone singing from a book recently. Let me think. Oh yes, it was the Copper Family.

What's needed is to persuade them there's a lot more to it and it can be better,

Perhaps you'd like to lead by example, Diane, instead of repeatedly saying how awful it is. You seem to think Matthew Parris is right.
