Thread Name: Pinewoods - An evil Empire???
Subject: RE: Pinewoods - An evil Empire???
What are the requirements to play at Pinewood? Is it really restricted or something? I know there are traditional music Festivals where songwriters are not welcome, and certainly a lot of songwriter-Festivals would never hire an unaccompanied ballad singer. Are there other criteria at work here? Our local folk organisation is heavily traditional at the moment, so the songwriters just go somewhere else. Doesn't it even itself out?
