Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
I have had nothing but respect and thanks from the younger singers I have met. One or two have taken songs from me (and credited me) and one has won a folk award with three songs from my early vinyl recordings on his Cd's.
I would like to think I have a good relationship with all of them.
I had a very special (to me) moment when Martyn Wyndham Read invited me on guitar and Cohen (Granny's Attic)on concertina on stage with him at the Grove Folk Club Leeds. Martyn Sang the Banks of Claudy. All three generations playing together! How special was that?
I really feel the music is safe in their hands, and I am genuinely excited for the future, and if this old voice of mine gives out in the next decade or so, I will hand over the flag with a good heart.
