GUEST, DTM BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016 (56* d) RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 06 May 16


I don't think there should be an "awards" show for Folk music. Award shows are everything that Folk music isn't.
Far better calling it "A Folk Appreciation Night" and select respected performers to perform and remove any 'competition' aspect from the proceedings.
These shows are ghastly and shallow. They are also divisive and thereby not in the spirit of folk music as a whole.
