Thread Name: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
Subject: RE: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
I note that some of the 'all music's folk music' types above have attemted to subvert the argument by 'seizing the moral high ground'. Those amongst us that think that a Young Folk Award competition, on national radio, should feature Folk Music are now, apparently, guilty of discouraging young and talented people. That, of course, is dishonest rubbish! I further note that this contemptible tactic is all too prevalent these days among people who are too lazy to construct a proper argument.
Read Pip Radish's excellent and exhaustive summary of the debate, posted on 10th Dec., and point out the moral failings in that!
