GUEST,Graham Bradshaw Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards (58* d) RE: Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards 16 Feb 11

I was interviewed on the local radio this morning (BBC Cov and Warwickshire) - they phoned me out of the blue for my reactions to the 2 Brit winners.

To paraphrase what I said (which was off the cuff):

I don't think either of them are what the majority of people in the folkscene would regard as 'folk', however the 'media' have labelled them as such. Is it a GOOD THING for folk? Yes, probably, if it opens the ears of the general public to something other than Britain's Got X Factor. And if a few people explore further and find the wealth of stuff that the folkscene embraces, then that is DEFINITELY a GOOD THING.
