There doesn't have to *be* a point, actually.

It's just here for people to watch, that's all. Many people enjoyed Kate's documentary in the same series (see other thread), so I thought I'd put Eliza's on too.

I don't put it on here for those who know about it, I put it here for those who don't. There are many who read Mudcat who never post here, so who knows, some of them may enjoy Eliza's programme.

I certainly hope so.

If anyone wants to watch video footage of any old TV programme it is unlikely they will have any difficulty in googling for it. My feeling upon original transmission was that the one on Eliza Carthy was one of the better films in a patchy series.

As far as I am concerned she is everything that is wrong with the English folk scene today. Ashamed to be a folk artist she pretends to be a pop star - I avoid her at every chance. English folk music is reviled by the masses - she does nothing to help bring it to the younger generation even though she thinks pink her will do so. She has a bloody awful voice anyway !!

"Ashamed to be a folk artist she pretends to be a pop star"

Erm, I'm not quite sure how Eliza pretends to be a pop star, nor is ashamed to be a folk artist...

Maybe when she's playing the fiddle for Goathland Plough Stots or Bampton morris? When giving her time for free in concerts to benefit the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library? When making rcords full of well-researched traditional songs both as a solo artist and with her family? By becoming the vice president of EFDSS?

Yes, I can see what you mean - she is definitely showing signs of being ashamed of the tradition.

You been drinking diesel? Certainly something's made you spout absolute bollocks. So completely bloody wrong on every count.
If EC is what's 'wrong' with the folk scene, I'd hate to see your version of a 'right' scene. A bunch of f*lkies in a parody competition, perhaps?

Lizzie, I went back & checked out both of Kate's "Music" though I still don't care for any more than before but I found, espically 'part' one very interesting. Thanks

As for Eliza, I've have a few chances to see & hear her live when she's been to the States in various combinations & I've seen & heard the Watersons/Carthy in various combos over the past 30 or so yrs to. Love them all no matte what form or shape they come in but Eliza IMHO has inherited the best of both sides of her family. She's got the love in her blood, the passion & energy, a voice that as she matures will if she hasn't already surpass her mother's & aunt's & the musical skills of her father. Some say she's was born into the spotlight, bull. She just had real good breeding & has done her utmost to step up to the plate.
Last time I saw her Norma couldn't be there but she was with Martin & "the bright kid on the box". Now I'm a bit gimpy & wasn't in the best health & I do get to see & hear a fair amount of talent but she had my socks rolling up & down like window blinds & my legs floping 'round like they were made of rubber.

What I haven't seen or heard is the "Watergirls", hopefully someday I'll get the treat.

LOOK!!!! Lizzie posted some info, which I actually HAD missed ( depite being quite competent on Google) cos you have to be aware that there IS something you want to search for before you actually bother to search. Isn't that bloody obvious. From me and others who weren't aware, thanks Lizzie, for those of you who already knew, why have you responded at all,, this clearly wasn't for you.
    I quite often get a feeling of ennui type deja vu when I read Lizzies more hyperactive posts, but nothing like the outrage I feel when some otherwise intelligent people scramble over each other to be the first to put her down. And as for those who want to take cheap shots at Liza McVCarthy, just Troll off somewhere else.. W* n*ers.

Come, come, the GUEST didn't actually say s/he was taking madlizziecornish to dinner, or throwing her a bagful of stale bread to share with the other squealing creatures on Sidmouth sea front.

Thing is, MLC has been told precisely where where to go and to cease and desist by an impressive string of eminent musicians in the past few days. These range from Eliza Carthy and Ralph Jordan themselves, through Phil Beer, Simon Care and Brian Peters.

So why, exactly do you think she starts these fatuous threads? Come on, it's not hard . . .

"As far as I am concerned she is everything that is wrong with the English folk scene today."

Utterly wrong but you're far from the only person who believes it. She was on top of her game when I saw her recently. No tedious introductions, jokes that were genuinely funny and a great performer. Real folk meets the real world, not a 'misery seeks company' act to four friends in a crap pub.

He may have been one of the first musicians to bite back at the sickening trivialisation, sycophantic fawning and unending drivel from MLC. But as I commented @ 06.33, the overwhelming tide of pissed-offness from such luminaries as Eliza Carthy, Phil Beer, Simon Care and Brian Peters (I'm sure there were more) that she should shut the fuck up is surely evidence enough for any benighted MLC apologists still around (any that are real that is, most being cyber-inventions of her own concoction), that the constant undermining of the careers of artists and activists is repulsive, entirely underserved and unnecessary and has to be stopped.

Guest Alex is certainly not someone I "purport to support" (whatever that means) since I haven't the faintest idea who he is (other than that I recall some purple prose he wrote about Simon Ritchie once which slightly astonished me).

I made a summary of recent public remarks by a few performers that I know concerning MLC's antics, and their fervent wishes for a cessation forthwith. These included Ms Carthy herself, the subject of this thread, who is so damn angry that she swears she'll make sure the crazed squawking seagull never gets near the EFDSS.

I write about music for a living (or did). Whether a performer is a "mate" or not doesn't come into it other than that I review what I like and if someone turns in a poor performance I would usually decline to write it up or return the CD. This has caused no perceptible "embarrassment" to anyone apart from to a now-dead impresario who I criticised publicly for artistic interference.

Lizzie, I hope you're not secretly precipitating this for some perverse 'any publicity is good publicity' reason. Anyway, to go back to the thread, thanks for posting some info I didn't have, haven't noticed anything embarrasingly sycophantic so far, and haven't heard Eliza ask people not to watch it.

No, Tugs, I'm not.   ALL I did was start a thread about Eliza, for the reasons stated above, and all hell broke loose..

Haven't heard Eliza ask for or say anything, which I'm sure she's very capable of when she wants or needs.

Dear Joe,
Folkies, peaceable - what are you on. Cyber cat-fights, and if bullshit floated our Captains would be Admirals. As they say in my country, "If you can't take a joke, you shouldn't have joined..." It's coming from a small island that does it - but then again, where would you colonists be without us?

Oh well, fair enough then eliza.

Perhaps Joe would close this thread down to save you further 'embarrassment' It's rare that I write about you, for the reasons I've stated in the other thread..but please rest assured, I won't do it again.

I apologise for leading a few folks to your documentary. Very stupid and thoughtless of me, but....obviously it's due to my 'moronic' tendencies, so you'll have to excuse me and show a little pity.

Far better that your music remains for the chosen few.

I don't happen to think you're a moron...and even if I did, I'd not say so on a board, but..hey ho...such is the beauty within the English Folk World, eh?

I'll leave it to Joe as to whether he wants to close this thread or not.

Could I just ask that if anyone comes to it, they don't open the links I've put in, because that's only going to cause eliza further distress, embarrassment and goodness knows what else.

Thanks.

Lizzie :0)

Nope, I've never had a dummy, Dave, just been followed around by more than a few, that's all.

I move on pretty quick from musician folks who feel this way. I'm blessed to have some really dear folks around me, who actually don't treat me like you lot do, Dave and who feel I'm anything but a 'moron'. They count for everything.

Sorry to disappoint you. :0)

I'm not the same "GUEST,eliza c" who posted this message. In fact, I'm not Eliza at all - I'm Mudcat member Doug Chadwick proving that anyone can say what they want as a GUEST, even with a name attached.

Don't believe all you read on Mudcat!

If it really was you, Eliza, then it's worth thinking about becoming a member so that people can't put words in your mouth.

DC

Blimey, Doug....eliza was in drag?

Oh, I is soooo confooooosed.... :0)

Thanks for pointing that out...

..and I do agree with you, same with Phil, and others, why not become full time members of Mudcat? Heck, I could send Phil PMs then! LOL No no nooooooo, just joking, honestly...terribly wicked sense of humour, me. Gets me into *terrible* trouble at times. Apologies..

Well, if it wasn't eliza, I take back my words...and if it was, best to let them stand...but who knows which way is up any more....

I'm off to Torquay for the day..blow some cobwebs away.

All of my posts get modded. I only asked Lizzie if she has been diagnosed as dyslexic.
    This thread is closed. The rules say "no personal attacks. Mick and I agree that this bullying is way out of control. If you want to post at Mudcat, be civil.
