Subject: RE: BBC Folk Awards Demo 7th Feb
I wouldn't say "personality disorders" (SurreySinger) or "cranks and crackpots" (PunkFolkRocker), but believing that what has become mainstream Americn culture is somehow above our own and, thus, singing with an American accent or adding pop, rock or jazz elements (and being rewarded/Awarded for it) IS wrong.

As Gareth Malone replied to one of my tweets, "English folk is cool" ~ RT @davidfranks: #folkawards When will we have an ENGLISH Folk Awards to match what they have in Scotland?
