Ruth Archer EFDSS sacking of Nick Hallam - wtf? (200* d) RE: EFDSS sacking of Nick Hallam - wtf? 18 Aug 10

"could you explain to me why, for years, they verbally punched the hell out of Show of Hands, saying they weren't 'folk'"

Who did? Where? Provide evidence that anyone at EFDSS or Cecil Sharp House ever said this, or retract it as the outright lie that it is.

"THEN they have Goldfrapp performing at Sharpingham Palace?

Beats me, that's fer sure...but hell, what do I know..?"

What indeed? The Goldfrapp gig happened as part of the BBC Electric Proms when they took place in lots of venues in Camden. A money-spinner, I'm sure, but not programmed by EFDSS. So the answer to your question would appear to be "not a lot".

"And how come Jim Moray's the Traddies darling, doing all that electronicwhirlyjerlyderly stuff, but Seth Lakeman is a big nonononononono....."

If you're referring to the fact that Jim has been booked and Seth hasn't, maybe you could have a word with your friend Seth and see if he'd do CSH a deal on his fee - I'm sure they'd be happy to have him. Knowing how much he normally goes out for, it would be impossible to book him into a venue the size of Cecil Sharp House without losing shedloads of money, which would explain his absence from the programme.
