Thread Name: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
Subject: RE: should the BBC folk awards be scrapped
If Irish radio and TV has been playing wall-to-wall Irish folk music all this time, how come Irish folk music seems to have gone completely off the boil in terms of evolution, innovation and as an international brand leader
So who is now perceived as the international brand leader? Whose traditional music has spread, with such recognizable 'purity', further afield?
