GUEST,Sean BBC 4 folk program (340* d) RE: BBC 4 folk program 10 Feb 06

Peter,K (Fionn) Yes Nigel's still around and in Birmingham. Last year he was in Germany with Pat Cookesy and Jim McLean. He was a stalwart of the Scottish and English Folk scene in the sixties. There was no mention on tonight's show about the Scottish revival in the late fifties and early sixties but it was all concentrated on the commecial aspect of folk, re Joe Boyd. However something is better than nothing even though we had to endure Billy Bragg singing(?) a song about being half English. Someone should tell him that the red, white and blue is nothing to do with England. He is a sad case of trying to be international without realising that he is inheritantly imperialist. It was nice to see that Anne Briggs is still with us.
