Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy in the Guardian
Yes indeed, a very spirited and well thought out article on Eliza Carthy's part

"I don't know what she's talking about in this last paragraph, and, more to the point, neither does she. "For once?" "Finally done?" "Every one of us a rare opportunity?" The Proms are one of the finest music festivals on the planet and this loadabollox is an insult. She sounds like one of those who think the Proms is the Last Night.   Go find your own barn, Eliza.

Ohhh she knows exactly what she's talking about, and I believe she knew, when writing it, that some people would get all bent out of shape about that last paragraph, with which, by the way, I fully agree, having attended, in my time, a few Proms concerts

It was much to my regret that I was unable to attend The Watersons/Waterson Carthy A Mighty River of Song. The Royal Albert Hall ws the perfect place for it.
