|Mike Harding - great!|
- Who judges these awards and how? ("They are top men" Who? "Top. Men.")
- Why is time that could be filled with music given over to long speeches - and not even speeches from the winners?
- Why does BBC Radio 2 give out awards for cutting edge folk music when for the rest of the year, apart from one hour a week on a Wednesday evening, Radio 2's idea of cutting edge folk music is Fiddler's Dram or The Wurzels?
- What happened to the Folk Club Award? There's absolutely no recognition of the non-musicians who make the folk scene in Britain function by running clubs and festivals, organising workshops or making instruments.
- Donovan? Seriously?
|All hail The Stickies!|
Actually, the Folk Awards doesn't give gongs, it gives ugly metal stickmen. As the awards desperately needs a good nickname I'll call them The Stickies until one comes along...
