Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations

All that I was trying to point out was the fact that as we get older, we probably don't feel the wow factor as much. I'm 50 this year, and love hearing new music both live and recorded in many genres. However, it never gives me quite the same buzz as it might have done as a teenager. I think unfortunately, that's just life...

I did get old, but also the acts got worse.

I really don't think that's fair. There's loads of excellent stuff if you bother to look.

1968 guest list for his Bristol folk club on FB

Al Stewart. Ralph Mctell, Clive Palmer, Mike Cooper...some others also legendary!

If I may make an obvious point? The young artists of today have only just started! How the hell are they supposed to be legendary yet?


What the fuck are you on about? Since when has the Phrygian dominant scale been any major part of English folk? I don't know if you try and use your Wikipedia copy and paste approach to make yourself look intellegent or not. BTW, it doesn't...

how many hits...use the hijaz scale NO DO they use quarter tones, NO because they know that familiar western music scales will make money, they know that there are a proportion of racists in England who will not buy anything that has a turkish or indian sound
