Thread Name: BBc defends folk awards
Subject: RE: BBc defends folk awards
There is a lot wrong with Smooth Operations and the Folk Awards( also with folk awards in my opinion but that's another story) but I dont think it's very fair to start being suspicious of Alan Bearman's stable of acts getting an excessive amount of awards(as happened earlier in the thread). Alan Bearman is an agent in the business of representing succesful folk acts. Given those aims, is it surprising that a lot of his people get a lot of awards? That's the kind of people he represents, and he's obviously very good at it. Nothing odd about that( except perhaps that finding an efficient folkie with a bit of nous is an odd thing in itself?)
