Yo Jon-boy - it's been too long! (I had a hunch it was you but the osteopath sorted that. Congrats on the MU gig by the way - that's fantastic news all round).

Yes - the Uk folk world is a strange conundrum. Amateurs employ pros and pros employ amateurs. Some amateurs are far more professional than the pros, and some pros are way more amateur then the amateurs!

Keep smiling, use a watertight contract and try to stay in tune - that's my motto!
