Thread Name: BBC4 Christmas Session
Subject: RE: BBC4 Christmas Session
Wasn't it just part of a long tradition of dressing up in daft clothes for a Christmas special? It did, superficially at least, look like Jack the Ripper meets Gay Pride but the audience and performers made the effort to put on a show which was visual as well as musical. That willingness to mess about and have a laugh is not something the folk scene is noted for.
