Beardy Jim Moray.... (113* d) RE: Jim Moray.... 14 Dec 03


I refer to the question posed in the original post...in my opinion....a nerd with a MIDI who cant really sing that well.

I saw Jim 4 times at various festivals during the year and cannot understand the fuss being made. I have seen the 'uture of folk music' many times during years of listening to folk and attending festivals. Martyn Bennett was proclaimed when he released ' Bothy Ballads' and Dr Didg has been using samples and loops for years.

However whilst I dont like Jim Moray myself I see no reason why others cannot appreciate his interpretations and vocal style nad a festival programme that appeals equally to everyone would be unique in my opinion.

Variety is what we crave; we can then judge for ourselves.
