Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
GSSchweik's view seems unnecessarily prescriptive/restrictive. There are many ways in which to enthuse/encourage/assist participants/performers of all ages re making music.

Workshops/Tuition is fine but may not necessarily be the preferred route for all.

It's probably best to see the R2 Awards as a celebration of the scene and its performers. I don't see them as a competition per se and they perform a valuable service in encouraging performers and bringing Folk music to a wider audience.
