Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
I am astounded by your arrogance Mr Carroll. Everyone single poster here has acknowledged the work you have done over a prolonged period of time. Every single poster understands that work such as this has been vital in preserving the "folk tradition".

How do you respond ............... "Patronising lip service Raggy - we did what we did to share what we got not to win compliments - clear?"

You are an utterly unsufferable boring, tedious, belligerent, bragging, bigotted old man.

During the course of my involvement in folk music (almost 60 years) I have often met with people who said I don't like folk music. I invariably asked them why, without exception they replied "it's all hey noni no and diddly diddly"

That my "friend" is down in large part to stupid old bastards like you.

I will go further, It is because of people like you that folk music has such a bad press and such a limited appeal.

You say you love the music but you crucify it with your every word.

Folk music would be better without you.

(My apologys to the rest of you good people. We've all beaten around the bush, we've all tried to be diplomatic and we've all tried to acknowledge Jim's work over the years, all to no avail)

I for one am thoroughly pissed off with this arrogant old twat!
