GUEST,Ewan Spawned A Monster combustible folk (71* d) RE: combustible folk 19 Jun 08

It's ok to be a log for the Wickerman: however big the fire, there's always someone round the corner happy to piss on it.

Is there a single musician, vocalist or instrument that everyone can agree on?

What we're looking for is someone who's a traditional singer and a singersongwriter (or neither); as old as the hills and the new kid on the block (or neither); is part of the folk establishment and is a shunned, reviled rebel (or neither); is an inspector in the folk police and and a hunted fugitive from justice (or neither); has paid their dues round every godforsaken folk club in the land and wouldn't piss on the last folk club standing if it was on fire (or neither); is playing the latest cutting edge ambient folktronica and has taylored their entirely career to getting onto 'wonderful' radio two (or neither); is a proudly amateur folk singer who thinks turning professional is a betrayal of the entire movement and is a pro with major label backing and a brilliant PR machine (or neither); thinks 1954 is the holy word of god and a random year halfway through the last century (or neither) or is anywhere (or nowhere) on the continuum (or not) between the two (or more). (Or less).

And their name is....
