Thread Name: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
Subject: RE: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
BBC and other media groups have no b.. idea of what folkmusic is- Michael Morpurgo is a fine writer and an interest in folk music.
However, when I see such as George Michael and Eddi Reader performing 'folk' music, I am surely entitled to reject such an offering.

I'd reject a jazz programme featuring Acker Bilk for much the same reason- such choices of performer indicate how little the producers know about the music in question.
