Subject: RE: Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 - Nominations
no Dave - nothing to do with me. i firmly believe nobody got to hear the best songwriters of my generation, which unfortunately i do not number myself among.
i know what i saw and what i see, at loads of festivals. as usual. you crawl up the arse of those you see as ....the prevalent view. carry on crawling...
maybe they'll let you buy them a drink.
i've spent most of my life organising folk clubs, helping out at festivals, etc. i very much doubt if you have tenth of my experience, as anybody who knows me personally could tell you.
Morris-et (how ironic!), I apologise if i have misunderstood what you are saying,,,sorry! expertise or insight into what?
i'm actually quite happy for the bbc folk lot to carry on as per. they don't do much for me. but as you can see from above there will always be someone to kiss the bums of the high and mighty.
