Subject: BBC Folk Awards Demo 7th Feb
From: GUEST,Ralphie
Date: 04 Feb 11 - 02:48 AM

Just a little reminder that the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards is happening Live on Monday evening 7th Feb.
The save Folkwaves campaign (against the abolition of Mick Peat and Lester Simpsons long running programme in the East Midlands) will be there to petition the great and the good! Oh, and maybe play some tunes and sing some songs!
The venue is
The Brewery
Chiswell Street London
EC1Y 4SD
(nearest tube Moorgate.)
It would be lovely to see people there.
The irony is that Lester Simpson, sacked two months ago, is up for an award with Coope Boyes and Simpson! And will be performing live on the Simon Mayo programme, also from the same venue! just before the award ceremony...
Also, there will be our friends from the campaign on Radio London to re-instate "A World In London" dedicated to the myriad musics in our Capital city...(DJ Ritu took over the programme after the untimely demise of Charlie Gillett, and has been replaced by 2 X Factor wannabees who don't even live in London!)
So, come one, come all, bring voices, and instruments.
Hope it doesn't rain too much though!

Hi Padgett. Hadn't heard about the Red Button bit....? Didn't think TV were covering it at all. That hasn't happened for years! I don't think the Beeb would spend money on the Folk Awards.
Surely they'd rather spend money on Strictly....etc...etc...
Anyway, If it's true, I'll do an I Player next day, as I will be standing outside the venue on Monday!

"On Monday 7 February, for the first time, the Folk Awards will be broadcast live on Radio 2 following a special edition of Simon Mayo's Drivetime which will also be broadcast live from the event from 1700 - 1945.

From 1945 - 2200 you can listen live to the Folk Awards ceremony as it happens or watch the whole event online or on digital TV by pressing the Red Button. Video highlights will also be available here and via the Red Button the following day."

At a national level, the BBC obviously considers that there is an audience for folk music, and folk dance too. There is a different opinion at local level. Stuart Thomas, Head of Regional and Local Programmes, BBC East Midlands, wrote to me to say;

"We feel we now need to provide a programme that appeals to a wider number of licence fee payers in the East Midlands, especially as there are no longer any local or regional programmes available on commercial radio in the evenings...

While I know some of these programmes also had a healthy following with listeners like yourself on the internet, my first responsibility has to be to the majority of licence fee payers in the East Midlands, and it was with them in mind that we are making this change."

I am sure he will be willing to announce the number of listeners attracted by the new programme to demonstrate that he was right.

Ralphie - it would be good if you could put the rough timings to be up there on here. I gather that the suggestion was to get there by at least 5.30 (although I do wonder if that might be just slightly late in view of the programme timings?)... but what I haven't been able to work out so far is exactly how long it's going to go on for (nobody has yet answered my question). If the intention is for it to go on until the awards actually finish to meet the outgoing attenders, then it might be worth coming up after my one and only work shift of the week finishes. (I don't relish the idea of taking the trek up to London to find that everybody has scarpered, and there was no point!)

Hi Irene.
I'll be there mid afternoon....Have taken delivery of loads of flyers! So, will hopefully get to the great and the good as they arrive for soundchecks. The charabanc from Derby and points north, probably won't get there until 1800ish, but representatives from AWIL are planning on getting there ealier...so, hopefully I won't be too lonely!
I'm sure that people will stay for the whole event....Think about it..You've schlepped all the way from Derby?! Why not stay for the evening?
And there is a pub close by.
Apart from the obvious reason for being there, It's a great chance to meet other protesters as well. Have spoken with the people behind A World In London, who are planning to pop down, to show support, which is lovely! All for one, and one for the pot!
Lester Simpson for a Lifetime achievement award!!!! (Unlikely!)

Quote: "Have spoken with the people behind A World In London, who are planning to pop down, to show support, which is lovely!"

Solidarity forever!

The closure of BBC London's AWIL means that there is now no community-focused music programme in London at all - London being a city of a couple of hundred languages, all with related music.

The shutting down of folk and roots progs across the BBC networks is an effing disgrace.

Let's make noise - let's hope it gets heard.

Well done on the recording of the Feedback programme. If anyone is interested in hearing the BBC "justification" from Stuart Thomas, and Chris Sweeney's eloquent questioning of him then you can do no better than listen to Ralphie's recording link here

As far as I can work it out. Mondays running order is as follows.
soundchecks start at 1400 with Bellowhead, etc. Simon Mayors show comes live from th venue between 1700-1900 (inc a Live set from Coope Boyes and Simpson! how ironic is that.)
Then the awards from 1945-2200. I'm aiming to get there about 1500. Please pop by! I'm 6 foot 4 grey hair, big nose! You can't miss me!

How's the leafleting going? Despite the weather, I hope you're having more fun than I am listening to the awards "preview" on Radio 2. Folk stereotypes confirmed - I can almost hear people switching off in their thousands.

I don't know why this should be - Simon Mayo is one of the few presenters I enjoy listening to. And Barbara Dickson came over well, but with a new album of traditional songs, she chose to play the only original one, and (in my opinion) not the best vehicle for her voice. Fairport Convention - a band still gigging, but they play the rather plodding Si Tu Dois Partir that must be - what, 40 years old? Very representative.

And Donovan. Oh dear. An embarrassment both luvvie-speaking and performing.

What a programme to present to a national audience.

Best bit was the "jingles" performed by Coope Boyes and Simpson. Ironic?

They haven't mentioned the demo yet.

I take back (some of) my previous comments. They were obviously trying to ease listeners in.

I turned off to have tea, then turned back on and heard Coope Boyes and Simpson, Kris Drever, Chris While and Julie Matthews, Emily Pportman, and remarkable Young Folk entrants whose name I didn't catch. And an acknowledgement that there was unrest over Donovan's award.

If I wasn't already a folkie, that would have turned me!

(Stilll haven't heard them mention the demo.)

Weird choice of presenters Tamsin Greig was appalling Joanne Trollope couldnt have been more patronising if she had tried, Roger Daltry had morphed into Hugh Grant but was at least coherent. Generally good result. Absolutely chuffed to bits that Ewan Mclennan won because if you know his stuff it is incredibly well deserved and he is one of the nicest blokes I know. Hollow Point was the worthy winner. Donovan??? do me a favour!

Too many to mention everyone so diverse too is "Folk" Chris Wood seems like a nice lad and met Joan Armatrading ~ who was the other chap he got an award from?

Lots of celebs inb the audience too and Fisherman's Friends look a great bunch of down to earth folkies

Bellowhead ~ well of course and lots of talent

So how the hell did the BBC Radio Derby protest fair, I really am sorry that I watch on the "Red" button, NO NO well done to you!

Well, unlike WAV, I was there, Leafletting on behalf of the Folkwaves campaign, (with our good friends from the Radio London campaign to re-instate "A World In London" ....can you turn those bloody Djembes down from 11!)
The event was predictably what it always is, but none the worse for that.
Was well pleased with the well deserved awards distributed though.
Andy Cutting, Chris Wood, with an astonishing performance of "Hollow Point" and Eliza Carthy, accepting the award on behalf of her seriously ill Mum, with baby on stage...
It's all still available for UK viewers on the Red Button, (If you've gone digital!)
And listen again on BBC IPlayer, for the next 7 days.

Maybe this will pave the way for MORE televised FOLK from English singers (including the Scots lad now based in Leeds)

The award presenters were generally a bit wordy but they tried valiantly in front of an audience that (to this telly viewer anyway) appeared to have undergone a mass sense of humour bypass before being allowed in. There were some rather tenuous links to folk music there... You'd think that, of all genres, it would have been possible to have a lot more live music in that huge great long show. A curate's egg, with Donovan undoubtedly the mummy chicken's arse.

Too much wittering in general by the presenters of the awards. Indeed, much too long spent in introducing (and fawning over) the presenters of the awards.

To be reasonably comfortble and to perform around-about their best, those on stage must have been fairly convinced that they were doing the right thing/were at the right venue - but, as suggested above, I think that must have involved a large amount of delusion.
