Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Personally, I don't like folk music being turned into a 'competition'.
Why? Because it's against it's very ethos, IMO.
I think it's fine to recognise exceptional cases with a 'lifetime achievement award' at some sort of ceremony however, pitching one artist against another is plastic showbiz straight out of Hollywood.
Bin it please.
