I gave up on the folkscene providing a living - when i saw guys like you had taken over who were 'uncomfortable' with professional entertainers and guys like Brimstone and Wizz Jones were struggling. i had hit records, played every other kind of venue ...country music gigs, irish theme bars, old peoples homes..always made a living. always played folk music to real folks. now i'm retired in better circumstances than many of the people who tried to to co-exist with you lot.

true enough - you and your mates are the kings of all you survey. keep your ringbinder good and shiney..

but never have the brass nerve and temerity to comment on the talents of a guy like Al who has proved it with his life as the born again Christians say.
