Thread Name: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Is the folk world not big and inclusive enough to house both the down to earth weekly folk club with their residents and jobbing singers as well as the glitz of the awards and famous names? Does anyone on here really think that the rock and pop world is all big names and fame? I reckon for every big name in any genre there are thousands who are just like the floor singers at your local club. It is only the famous who get noticed and purely on that score it has to be a good thing to give the folk world the kind of platform that everyone sees. In my opinion of course.
