Thread Name: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?
I havn't used the Internet much before but I was delighted to find so many interesting things about folk music on a Website like this, which I was told about by people as being very relavant to Folk Music which I have been listening to for a long time and I have been to folk clubs quite a lot, but I have been quite suprised by some of the rubbish which this Website has been quoting.
For example Mr Borchester Echo says I am bigging up Show of hands when in fact I think really that they're publicity stunt is bringing folk music into disrapute by causing people to complain about litter and sticking posters up on public property, all because they want to advertise themselves like some pop band.As I said i have been to a lot of folk clubs for a long time and even spoke to (and I got their autographs)from some famous groups like the Yetties but a lot of people, for example some people I work with think, that folk music is quite respectible.
And Mr John Mackenzie I would like to ask how much you know about me as you say I am from London but I am a proud Yorkshireman, from Tadcaster which as you obviously don't know is known as Taddy, so ha ha you don't know that much.
