Subject: RE: BBc defends folk awards
Honours would be spread more widely if each artist could win just one award.
They would be spread even further if winners were not considered the following year, or perhaps for the next two years.
These measures would make the BBC Awards more of a showcase for folk - if that is the intention.
I think it's a good thing to bring in presenters from outside the world of folk. It shows that folk does have a wider appeal.
