Subject: RE: Jim Moray- new face of folk? BBC R4 now
Miss Monneypenny-they used to talk like that about me, but hopefully they got bored and forgot about it at some point, or at least do it off the board where I can't see it!
To stick my neb in, I don't like all of what Jim does, but I also think that he does have a great imagination and is prepared to take risks with the music, and it is unrealistic to expect such a young performer to spring "fully formed" from his bedroom, to never change. I think he is an overly nervous and clever musician right now, but I wish him the best of luck playing electric music in a mostly acoustic scene, and I think he will improve with age too. All the best to him, I hope he does well and makes the music that makes him happy.
