Subject: RE: BBc defends folk awards
I agree with Silas, on the presenters thing. Last year they had Tamsin Greig as one of the presenters. Now I love her as an actress, and she will always be Debbie Archer in my mind. However she waffled on about nothing, tried and failed, at being funny, and generally was an embarassment to herself and the Folk Awards.
If they want someone funny, there's Richard Digance, John James, Noel Murphy, and a host of others, who are folk performers, and amusing too. People the audience can relate to more easily.
