I saw the breakfast program this morning. A remark made by the presenter highlighted the BBCs attitude towards our folk music.

Sorry. Pressed the wrong button.

The remark was:- "It doesn't matter that he plays folk music, he transcends that."

Not knowing the tone or context of the remark I would have read it as
Nic's playing is folk music and more. A compliment to Nic rather than an insult to folk surely? But I know what you are getting at all the same.

Cheers

John Hegley is a folkie, as well as a performance poet, and has been booked by Islington folk club, so I think it very unlikely that he was dissing folk music...

Transcends folk music?he probably meant that it excels or surpasses folk music, these two words have slightly different interpretations, excel can mean surpass or it can mean make pre eminent, we do not know which he meant.Nic jones making folk music pre eminent[distinguished above others in quality] I find acceptable.
The most important thing in my opinion is that folk music appeared on breakfast television, and was performed well by two good performers.

Strange - that one worked. Back to square one. What I posted previously was the fact that Grex's quote is incorrect. What Sam Carter actually said was "It sort of doesn't matter that he plays folk music; it transcends that. You play it to people who don't have any history of listening to folk music and they're spellbound by it". So in fact it's not a remark about the quality or otherwise of folk music, but a comment about Nic's ability to communicate and connect musically with people. Those are two very different things.

As to the matter of the iplayer, sadly the BBC doesn't normally seem to put Breakfast Time up on that.

I tried on i-Player, but, tho Breakfast Time icon appeared in the right place, it said 'not available' below. Don't know why they don't make such a programme available: I should have thought it was what i-Player was for!.

Annoying.

Mr Red - correct. It is an hour long programme, and the Breakfast Time interview was specifically to promote the presentation of the film.

Some lovely guitar sounds from others on there.

But can I simply commit suicide now, burn all my guitars, cut off my fingers and break my arms?

Having now watched the Enigma programme, it seems to me that the comment about transcending folk music was made by Sam Carter, and not John Hegley...

The programme was excellent. As a folkie who had never seen him live there was inadequate use of the complete songs. IMNSHO
Though I felt that at times they edited clips about things other than Nic Jones.

It did feel as if they did not have enough usable material so they included connected thoughts. so why....see above.

Richard - you didn't offer to remove your larynx! Or the brain that put it behind, across and generally riding over the beat! (;-}}

It was indeed Sam Carter, and in context it simply meant that Nick's music appeals to people who do not profess an interest in Folk Music.

"It doesn't matter that he plays folk music, he transcends that."

It doesn't, and he does. I have plenty of friends who aren't folk fans in the broader sense, but own and love Penguin Eggs and one or two other seminal folk albums. Some music appeals to music fans, and transcends narrow genre barriers. Just as Steig Larsson, for example, appeals to people who don't generally read crime fiction.
