Subject: RE: Culture doesn't include Trad Music
I would say that locally you can write to Cllr Lucas. He is the council member for heritage and arts and very keen and supportive of arts. (I have had experience of members who didn't give jackshit about their remit.) Lucas is not one. Really nice man.
Also to Lord reservoir (oops I mean Hanningfield).
But we are only two lone voices in the wilderness. Even at the Record Office where one would think there would be more favourable attitude at least from archivists. Not so. If I listen to CD (Ramskyte, Salt of the Earth or Silly Sisters) off the speakers, when an archivist comes in they make some comment like "sounds like they are in pain."
Very discouraging. To them it is more a museum piece and belongs behind glass.
