Thread Name: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
Subject: RE: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
That thread about "new face of f*lk" contained a lot of vile putdown and I remembered Greg Stephens dismissing Jim Moray's music as "messing about with computers" Musicians down the ages have always used what's to hand as it became available and presumably the first C19 player to use a box to accompany a Morris side was ridiculed by the backward-looking old sods of the day: "Oh, they'll never catch on . . . "

[Just wondering when the outcry about Low Culture is going to break out. Are you all waiting for All You Pretty Girls to win Best Original Song at the Folk Awards or are you going to pass on that one since Smoothops didn't manage to get it nominated for Best Trad Song?]
