Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
It is good that so many people have strong opinions on the way the folk scene has developed,how it has changed and what it needs and have taken the effort to post their ideas here.
It made me wonder if any of those taking part here make efforts to see things happen in the way they would like by organising events themselves. I know that Dick organises a festival in his part of south-east Ireland and I know from long personal experience how much effort is involved in that. I also know that Mike (Will Fly) runs sessions and comperes a folk club.
Anyone else?
It's just that I would take more notice of the posts from those who have the hands on experience of being organisers to make things happen in the way that they would approve of.
