Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
I've said it many times before, whenever the question of the folk awards comes up - which it does regularly - but I may as well say it again.
I think they're a waste of space. And, let's be clear - the awards are not "competitions", in the sense that the participants compete directly against each other and are judged on that performance. The awards prove nothing and have no significance, apart from being just another showbiz bash.
Just my opinion, of course...
