Thread Name: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Subject: RE: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
GeorgeH,

I appreciate your belief that you were "factually" summarising what you have labelled the "Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer Saga" here.

However, I'd like to point out that the source of information to which I have been referring was not your original post to this thread, but the Living Tradition editorial. Which also makes reference to the Dick Gaughan message you attempted to "summarise" here. The Living Tradition editorial states:

"Dick Gaughan made that very point in a newsgroup forum on the internet."

Apparently you are active in that forum as well. However, as I stated earlier, Folk Roots and the UK folk newsgroup are not the only sources of information on this matter.

It may well help lower the levels of animosity in this thread if you would temper your remarks, and your insistence that "facts" which you summarised here are the one, only, true version of events and circumstances surrounding Celtic Music and Dave Bulmer.

The facts you cite have been greatly distorted over the years that this issue has been discussed, both on and off line, and in the UK music press (which last time I checked, included Living Tradition).
