Thread Name: If you like Nic Jones you'll like Damien Barber
Subject: RE: If you like Nic Jones you'll like.....
Les, the reason I don't agree with other people's suggestion is because most of the names mentioned are on the second rung in Pantheon of folk music. I don't know who the hell Kate Rusby is. She is probably a fine performer, but is that any reason to mention her in the same breath as Nic Jones. Is that all Nic is: a fine performer?
By the way, I got my quote the wrong way round. It should have read: If you like Miles Davis, you will like Kenny Ball. So...if you like Nic Jones you will like Kate Rusby? Again, I don't think so.
