WalkaboutsVerse the uk folk revival in 2019 (330* d) RE: the uk folk revival in 2019 12 Oct 19


The BBC are partly at fault for a drop in standards: a few years ago, after Chris Wood won Song of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, with "Hollow Point", I made an online challenge for session musicians to try and double the melody of his singing.

It seemed to me there was no real attempt to count the syllables/use slurs, etc., in order to fit his words to a REPEATED tune yet, as I say, he, rather than others doing the right thing, won the award and, no doubt, several bookings.
