Thread Name: Bootleg Beatles at Beverley Folk Festiva
Subject: RE: Bootleg Beatles at Beverley Folk Festiva
These big name acts are there to attract funding and put bums on seats. The local yuppies will pay the inflated prices and down gallons of booze. Only drawback is if they put decent folk acts on the same concert the yuppies talk loudly all the way through and keep getting up to go to the bar in the middle of songs. The festival itself is still very much grass-roots folk and it works and it's not going down the pan. All power to Chris's elbow. I can't believe I wrote that!
