"wouldn't last 2 minutes on the British Folk Scene"

Eh? Well, now, Steve; lessee!...

I've been on British Folk Scene since mid-50s. Have done countless gigs; issued record on [alas now defunct] Brewhouse label (still a few copies left!); reviewed folk records, concerts, books regularly for The Guardian, The Times & many other journals; was for several years regular back-page columnist of Folk Review; have an online YouTube thread of 40 songs; contribute, so far several thousand times, on various topics on this very forum right up [obviously] to this present very moment, &c &c ...

have voted Conservative for many elections now, being a believer in old saying that 'the man who is not a socialist at 20 has no ❤; the one who is still one at 40 has no 〠'...

will be 84 this week — but ain't dead yet...

& like my dear dead friend Peter Bellamy, who lasted somewhat more than 120 seconds on the Scene, innit!, have never made any secret of these views & tendencies...

Some 2 minutes, hey!

Best regards
