Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Iasked for an answer from Allan Conn, I am still waiting
"can you give me of examples of performers they have encouraged other than past winners?
yes, I have answered that question, Dave, go back, think, and look.
if you do not understand everything I have said, then you do not understand that this is the music of people, it is not the music of tin pan alley.
I will leave you with a quote from Ewan MacColl
My function is not to reassure people. I want to make them uncomfortable. To send them out of the place arguing and talking.
