the button Eliza Carthy doc Sunday 11am on Five (65* d) RE: Eliza Carthy doc Sunday 11am on Five 27 Apr 08


"Celebrity endorsements" are pretty much par for the course for folk music nowadays. Like the fuss that was made when that bloke from Blur turned up to the Young Coppers at C# House. But then remember the shock and outrage a couple of weeks back when Matthew Parris said nasty things about our beloved music? Famous people can't win, it seems. Heh.

It might be irksome, but if it helps one more person to go, "Oh, I might give some of this a listen," then fair play, I say. Very few of us were born listening to folk music, I'm guessing, and we all got into it somehow. Would this programme about Eliza Carthy have been screened without some celebs to give their imprimatur? I'm not so sure.
