Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
I booked Seth Lakeman in 2005 for the first Loughborough festival at the Town Hall.

My "new life in Sidmouth FolkWeek" was certainly originally predicated on my partner's involvement in the festival - which goes back some 30 years. So once again, really nothing whatever to do with you and far pre-dating your awareness of the festival, but no doubt you'll still imagine it's all about you.

My newfound friendship with Show of Hands? Well, that probably was a bit more to do with you - Steve e-mailed me to apologise for the abuse I was getting from you on their behalf. It soon became apparent, not least from Phil's public message (which really was from him, no matter how many quote marks you put round his name), that they found you as unpleasant as I do, and your attentions not a little worrying. I guess you could say we bonded. We certainly had a drink and a laugh on Monday night at the folk awards. But I will not be writing reams of fawning, adoring drivel on websites about them - they don't want or need it, and that's not what I do. I have booked them, though, which I should imagine is rather more useful to them.
