Thread Name: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
Subject: RE: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
it is nevertheless,played much more on the Irish television and radio programmes.,without themusic being compromised.

It is indeed, but that's not comparing like with like, either in the case of the music or the audience.

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.


I agree with that, and I could grumble for the County about it, but surely it's a matter of subjective taste?
