GUEST,John from Elsie`s Band BBC 4 folk program (340* d) RE: BBC 4 folk program 14 Feb 06


Although I have very much enjoyed "Folk Brittania" so far I am dismayed so little has been said about the Folk Clubs and sessions that have been running for 50 years or more, representing the true beating heart of British folk music. As many of you know there are organisers and performers who, for most of their lives, have dedicated (if that`s too strong a word) so much time and energy to the continuance of our musical heritage and these people deserve more credit than is given on such a programme. Many of the artists featured are extra-ordinarily talented, innovative and a joy to listen to but have moved to a plateau that is far removed from British folk music that is still found in all corners of our islands.
