Big Al Whittle The current state of folk music in UK (2105* d) RE: The current state of folk music in UK 19 Nov 19

No I'd never heard that story. But honestly Jim, you have to understand that WE all accept that not everybody is going to like us if we become a professional artist. It goes with the territory we occupy.

In one of Dirk Bogarde's books, he tells the story of a director who was always horrible to him, and just as Dirk was retiring said - I TOLD YOU'D never be any good!

Its just the bravery of the ordinary performer footsoldier. If you haven't got it, you can't do the job.

Some of your friends get very hurt when they see the way people treat you and the things they say. But the bottom line is that you don't let these assholes stop you from doing what you want to do ...i promise you, Ewan would have understood this.
