Subject: RE: EFDSS awards funding for new music
We need to put aside our prejudices. Any song/tune whether folk-orientated or not will live or die on its own merits. Yes it needs to be given the chance to be heard. I personally don't like a lot of the vocal acrobatics some of the new generation are using but I'm very glad it is all happening and the scene is vibrant enough to include a wide range of styles and experimentation.
