Subject: RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
For many years my reaction to the phrase 'singer-songwriter' has been to groan (yes there are many good, even excellent ones)- I now 4xperience a similar reaction to 'award-winning' and after hearing some of the bilge coming out of the Edinburgh Festival. I think I'll add 'stand-up comedian' - oh, and ACCLAIMED in any context equals AVOID AT ALL COSTS....
