OK, I'm a very big Carthy fan. What has he actually done this year, apart from turning 60?

The OAPs deserve their bit of glory, but lets look to the future. Lovely to see some recognition and encouragement for Cara Dillon.

I'm going to miss you. Good construction, impeccable grammar, very few typo's (yes, conjunction), although I did spot today's, and you really know how to work a crowd. But I suspect you are wilfully orchestrating the Guest demise, which is clever in itself.

God, this gong show thing for folk music has to be about the most idiotic thing...

And do they come in limos, with tuxes and pretty prom dresses?

Yah--THIS is what folk music needs, prizes.

The following is the report from the BBC website:

"*Folk honours its heroes*

Ralph McTell, The Chieftans and Fairport Convention have each won lifetime achievement awards at BBC Radio 2's Folk Awards in London.

Guests at the event included former Catatonia singer Cerys Matthews, who appeared with Eliza Carthy to sing a duet.

Carthy's father Martin was named folk singer of the year, succeeding his wife Norma Waterson, who took the prize last year.

Other guests at the awards, held at the Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square, included Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell.

McTell won the lifetime achievement prize for his songwriting. His track Streets of London has been covered more than 200 times, by acts from Aretha Franklin to the Anti-Nowhere League.

*Traditional tunes*

Fairport Convention, who are celebrating 35 years together, collected their prize from Jethro Tull's frontman Ian Anderson. Their 1969 Liege and Lief was voted best folk album ever by Radio 2 listeners.

Radio 2 controller James Moir handed over The Chieftans' prize to Paddy Moloney's band, who interpret traditional tunes in a semi-classical way.

Mr Moir said: "It is thrilling to see truly great artists being recognised for their outstanding contribution to the world of folk and both exciting and reassuring to see so many new, talented performers emerging and rightly taking their place in the spotlight.

"I am delighted we can give folk music a national platform on BBC Radio 2."

*Winners in full*

Folk singer of the year: Martin Carthy Horizon award: Cara Dillon Best album: The Bramble Briar - Martin Simpson Best group: Cherish The Ladies Best live act: Rory McLeod Best original song: Who Will Sing Me Lullabies? by Kate Rusby Best traditional track: Black Is The Colour, performed by Cara Dillon Instrumentalist of the year: Martin Simpson Lifetime achievement award for songwriting: Ralph McTell Lifetime achievement award: Fairport Convention Lifetime achievement award: The Chieftains"

So when do they want my vote for Eliza in?

Best live act: Rory McLeod

If anyone has seen him live, they will surely agree with this one. One performer that certainly gives great value for any entrance fee.

I too enjoy Rory McLeod, but disagree that everyone would agree with my tastes, Shambles.

Which is the problem with gong shows. It is all a popularity contest among (hopefully) talented musicians.

Which tells you nothing, beyond the fact that Ian Anderson must have had something to do with it. He's all for whatever selling out of the folk it takes for the music to be recognized by the masses he loves to despise as tasteless (because they disagree with his tastes).

They are currently trashing Irish folk babe Cara Dillon, for instance, over there in ukmf right now, and singing the praises of English folk babe Kate Rusby. Wonder what that's all about, considering they are two sides of the same coin. Its about folk babes, not anything to do with integrity OR music.
