Tam the man Folk Artists - Wise up (or Fade away)! (192* d) RE: Folk Artists - Wise up (or Fade away)! 18 Sep 05

I won't be here for a week, thank god says you, anyway some of you from what I read is if you treat these people like if they a terrible illness, they have their way of doing things and you have your way some of can remember songs better than others. I just wish you lot would listen, I feel as I losing the battle here I just wish you lot would give these people a chance and some help, instead of condming them, and don't say you don't because you do. for example most of you say that in your opinon that using a songbool on stage will performing is wrong, or lazy. Well that maybe so but please give them a chance, instead of being horrible to them.
Nae wonder I get angry sometimes
I think I'll just give in, its hard trying to defend people that use songbooks on stage when it feels that the whole folk world is against you, don't say you're not and then rant and rave about the use of songbooks on stage is wrong, a bit hypocritcial I think, at least I'm trying to be honest here, I mean don't you lot not use songbooks to practise your songs, and if you do then you condem those that use them on stage.
