Subject: RE: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
I listened to the prog tonight ,whilst watching me boys train at rugby.
then I saw this thread.
I heard the winning act as driving me boys home, they are 15-16 year olds, and they had to listen
they wondered what I saw and see in the prog at the best of times
I think Jim Moray is a fantastic fellow for coming on the mudcat.
I liked The Jackie O when she played at the St Albans roots comp some time back , especially as she sang enchantedly
I prefer 'songs' with substance and thats what I'm searching for as a singer.
Trouble now is everyone thinks they can write.
I am confused by John Kelly's version of 'Spencer the Rover', is it his/yours John if you are reading this - own adaptation ? Very original but we have all sung it from time to time.
Cant stand young precocious talent.
Mind you we wont complain about 16 year olds, even 14 year olds competing for their country in sport, but you have to be 16 to do lots of other things
Good luck to Joe and Megan, the world is your oyster, go for it.
And to all the rest of us, tough luck.
Hey Diane, always nice to hear from you.
Paul, did you play the CDs?
