Thread Name: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
Subject: RE: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
If 'folk' music was popular it would be treated and marketed as 'popular music'. The moral being, be careful what you wish for..[quote]
it is nevertheless,played much more on the Irish television and radio programmes.,without themusic being compromised.
having listened to one of the winners of these BBC AWARDS,I would say that that particular person,has already decided ,to take the commercial pop road.
popular music with a folk flavour ,competently performed,but bland.
