Harmonium Hero Poor Performers & What to do? (133* d) RE: Poor Performers & What to do? 16 May 13


Ron Davies: Thank you for those comments. It seems that what you - and others, judging by other comments I've had - are picking up is just what I intend: that it's not about the singer - it's about the song. In the popular music field, it's the other way around - it's about the singer. It seems to me that too many people here - in the UK - are trying to drag folk music into showbiz. It's not where it belongs. There seems to be too much emphasis on personalities, awards, and 'entertainment'. I always thought, in my naivety, that people went to folk clubs to be entertained by folk music. Silly me!
Thanks again. I just hope that some organisers here pick up on this - not just for my sake; as I said earlier, there are quite a fewof us banging our heads against the same brick wall.
John Kelly.
