Subject: Apology - BFG to Gene Burton

Waaaaaaaaaaay back on 22 Aug 2004 I wrote to a thread about "Is Martin Carthy Shite" under my pseudonym of BFG.

I responded to Gene Burton's comment with a derogatory remark about Gene thinking it would be treated as a joke (I admire Gene and have bought one of his CD's & blagged another off him - I even judged him in a songwriting comp and he 'walked it')

Well! Gene saw the funny side of it but I gather others might not have been so amenable so I hereby A P L O G I S E unreservedly to Gene and would like to say........

He is one of the most original young performers I have ever had the opportunity to meet - He has a maturity in voice & guitar style and songwriting far beyond his youthfulness and I am sorry for my crass thoughtlessness in my original thread posting.

If you are a music venue organiser I can highly recommend Gene to you.

My Word Juan P-B . You are big enough and ugly enough to handle ANY young whippersnapper. Either Gene B has a LOT of Very Heavy Friends
or he is well worth looking put for .

Believe me El Tel!! I'm big enough (as you know) to handle most 'heavy friends' but I was out of order and Gene is a gent and I confirm that he IS one of the brightest new lights to hit our circuit - It's a damn shame that he's not doing support for the likes of RT (That was ME!!!!!!!! July 26th Abingdon)

Hi, George-

Sorry for not responding to this earlier but my internet access is patchy at best at the mo- I'm restricted to a couple of hours a week at the local library; one of the privations of being a struggling artist :) Anyway, apology unreservedly accepted- I probably should've realised you weren't being serious when I found out it was you; but if the truth be told I've managed to make a few enemies in the last few months what with one thing and another and it isn't necessarily always obvious to me who they are. Seriously, it's big of you to come forward like that and I appreciate your candour.
Just occurred to me...why not cynically use this thread as an opportunity to plug my brand new CD? If anybody wants to sample my truly execrable vocal talents for themselves, email me at with your name and address and I can send a copy to you (price negligable/negotiable).

All the best,
