Thread Name: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Subject: RE: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Mid-Atlantic accent as in Midlands person halfway to festivals in Canada? What's wrong with emulating and absorbing influences like Jon Boden (and Chris Wood and Radiohead) anyway? Or in actually studying music to degree level?
C'mon. Jim Moray is an incredibly broad-based musician and producer drawing on the many sources that have touched him so far. If this helps rescue our music from those who would keep it in glass cases wrapped in arcane language and archaic presentation then more power to his laptop.
For those who haven't heard the R4 Front Row interview yesterday, it's on playback on the BBC site.
