Subject: RE: NU-ROUTES - Eliza Carthy / John McCusker
But I don't really think having concerts in places that are really only going to attract folkies is not really going to raise thier profile. I agree that they have not had the exposure to the General Public and being young(ish) do deserve more exposure (but look at all the tallented musicians who also deserve exposure). Anyway the point that I was trying to elicit (not very well) is why are these established artists (and they are established) not helping to promote up and coming people - real newbies - at these concerts. Just how hard would it be for Eliza to be the headline act with two or three new acts supposting her?

I am not having a go at the artists but rather the promoters who are putting these concerts on.
