"I note you say you are no longer married to your husband the former Director of Sidmouth Festival."

I said I was married to *one* of the Directors of Sidmouth (Folk Week)...there were many at the time, Dave. May I suggest you check your facts.

"Are you sure he was at meeetings when he told you he was?"

Geez, seems the milk on your cornflakes was a little sour this morning.

Sidmouth is not my local festival. I have no interest in the current artistic director, as well you know, as she's someone who's called me, publicly, a racist, and never had the guts to apologise for that either in private or in public.

I presume you're deliberately trying to stir things in that direction, Dave. I'm not taking the bait.

Please keep this thread on track. It's not for personal insults, nor Gestapo style questioning. I have told you that I know several artists who are have found it very difficult to break into the folk world. I will not put their names down, so you're going to have to put up with that...It's no good trying to bully me into anything with a barrage of questions or personal insults.

Other people have put the evidence down here for you, but still you will not accept it. That's fine. That's your choice.
