Thread Name: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
I have been involved in "Folk Music for over 60 years always at grass roots level. Aside from Shirley Collins, I have never heard of any of those nominees listed and I agree totally with Dick. These awards mean little or nothing to the folk scene. I would rather see someone like her named in the next honours list for services to traditional music. I suppose there are many more who would qualify in that respect, but certainly not those nominated.
