Subject: RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
Yes I am aware of the Awards categories and the strength and depth of "artists" is very deep and the quality very high ~ ppl go to folk festivals to do their thing dancing singing story telling, playing tunes and not necessarily to hear the newest bright you things

My view is that traditional folk should be the base ~ song writing is contemporary folk and good songs do rise to the surface ~ O'Hooley and Tidow with Gentleman Jack?

All food for thought
