Silas BBC Folk Awards 2014 (216* d) RE: BBC Folk Awards 25 Feb 14

I agree with Johnny J. The current generatgion have leaned a lot from the pioneering generation that has been mentioned, have learned and moved it forward. Instumentalists of today, and I mean particularly theb younger ones are far, far in advance of almost anything that I saw in the seventies amnd eighties. Look at people like Tim Edey, Dan Walsh, Jim Moray, Blair Dunlop, Ciaran Algar and Greg Russell and I could fill a page with names. The reason that we single out Swarb, Bert Jansch, Davey Graham is because they were exceptional - I would say that side by side, in comparison with the current talenty on offer they they would be mainstream. BUT - they did show the way.
