Thread Name: BBC Folk Awards Demo 7th Feb
Subject: RE: BBC Folk Awards Demo 7th Feb
David - this is the agenda I see which does disturb me. These are your posts on this thread (other than those where you accuse me of having an agenda)

1.The Bewilderingly Broad Church Folk Awards: let's all Americanise our music, back Fabio Capello, and go for a curry! (Anti American, anti Italian, football thread drift, anti Indian)

2 There'll always be an England (our traditions are just that strong), and (unlike the Scots) we don't need an "English Folk Awards".(Good for us xenophobic little Englanders)

3 a folk song should, of course, REPEAT the tune used in the first stanza (and chorus)(no of course about it - just another mistaken pronouncement, but at least on topic)

4 .or take Awards off them for so badly over-accompanying traditional songs? (according to the Gospel of WAV)

5 if we are to accompany traditionally- unaccompanied English, e.g., folk-songs, we should surely keep it light" (here). (according to the gospel of WAV)

6 ...I'll tell you what I did like, for what it's worth, S.T.M: Fisherman's Friends' performance - entertaining AND authentic. (reasonable post)

I really have no problem with you - I don't know you. Many of your posts disturb me.
