Thread Name: Change at the BBC folk awards
Subject: RE: Change at the BBC folk awards
Ah! The same Hannah James and Sam Sweeney that were nominated for a Horizon award at the Folk Awards a couple of years back? Just remind me, was that in the "little sweetheart of the moment" category or the "blaring, noisy, out-of-tune band" category?

Of course, you know I'm just pulling your leg. As far as I'm concerned the Folk Awards are pretty much just a Radio 2 show designed to appeal to a Radio 2 demographic. Which is fine. As it was happening three miles from my house, I went last year (as a paying punter) and quite enjoyed some of it - especially as I have managed to blank out any memory of Don McLean - but the earth didn't move, either in a good way or a bad way.
