Thread Name: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Subject: RE: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Yes, yes, yet another, new face of folk, safe pair of hands, sign of interest by young people in traditional music, and so on and so on....And yes it seems that qualifications, certificates and letters after your name seems to be a prerequisite to becoming a Folksinger nowadays. I have never heard Jim Moray singing live but I have had the pleasure of having an extended listen to his CD. and it is well worth hearing. BUT, new? ground breaking? life changeing? set the (folk)world on fire? draw hordes of young people into clubs and festivals? NO.
