Sorry, Morris-ey - simply not true.
I suppose you might call me an 'old geezer' as I'm 73 this year. I spent Monday evening MC'ing a folk night at the Brighton Acousic Session - with guests in their early 20s playing and singing and generally performing incredibly well.
One of the young performers is a regular at the monthly session in the White Horse in Ditchling - a very talented squeezer - and there are other vibrant sessions in the area which are populated with young musicians with whom it is a pleasure and a privilege to play.
No stereotyping, please. And, for your information - should you care - I have no truck with any awards system on any topic, or indeed the Honours system generally. Once again - just my viewpoint.
