Thread Name: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
Subject: RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
Here is a suggestion, this undoubtedly has flaws but something to consider, if the BBC deem it necessary to have awards
An Award for the best young[under40] folk club organiser, an award for the best young folk[under40] festival organiser. I suggest this because these are two things that are lacking in the uk folk revival.
What else needs improving, the overall standard of floor singers?
this could be divided into sections[rule one no performing with scraps of paper].
I do not approve of awards, but if the BBC insists on having them then logically, those aspects of the uk folk revival that are in need of strengthening should be looked at.
