Thread Name: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Subject: RE: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Jim Moray is perfectly capable of standing and singing unaccompanied and, indeed, often does to stunning effect. Because of his extensive musical training - which has given rise to so much inexplicable criticism - he can also vary the accompaniment and arrangement according to which of his many instruments are available - for instance not every venue has a piano. I cannot believe Treewind can have heard Lemady performed live and then assert that the programming "doesn't do anything for the song". As someone said earlier in the thread, just give the guy a break. Go and see him and be amazed. Or if you can't, listen to Sweet England.
