Thread Name: Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards
Subject: RE: Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards
I'm sorry if my earlier thoughts came across as a criticism of Mumfords musical/songwriting skills...
What annoys me, are the people stating that "People should perform music that I like" and "Festivals should book people that I like".
Well, as has been pointed out above. 2 Festivals (Oxford and Trowbridge) have gone to the wall. Others are looking nervously over their shoulders in these straightened times.
I'd love to hold a festival in a beautiful part of the country with all my favourite artists......Wouldn't even dare to try, even if I could afford it! But I admire all of those hard working people who keep on keeping on, providing the festivals that still exist.
Back to the Mums...They don't want to play Folk Festivals anyway apparently....So, what's the problem?
