Thread Name: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
Mooriss-ey, you have not heard me perform, that is easily rectified
I have been performing professionally IN uk Folk clubs and festivals since 1976, this is not opinion, but fact.Ihave been consitently booked since 1976, 40 years
I am not sure why Miorriss_ey has to state that he has never heard me perform,I am not sure of the relevance of it to the discussion.
my performing abilty is surely not relevant to whether i am entitled to an opinion.
are all the other contributors to this thread performers?
"One last thought. I also wonder whether - as some have said - that the publicity over the BBC Folk Awards will actually increase the number of people who listen into the music. I see no evidence either way."
I agree with this statement.
