Sounds promising.

Not been keeping up with what's been happening in the 'folkscene', not since the BBC "Folk on Friday" (remember that? - with Wally Whyton and Jim Lloyd).

Occasionally I hear something interesting on BBC Radio 3 - at about midnight - otherwise your blogspot has proven invaluable.

Went to see Steeleye Span a couple of years ago - a mistake. So dead, all old folk just like myself. No dancing in the aisles, not that I would have liked to do that, but it just reflected how the audience had aged with the ageing 'folkies' - not engaging the younger audience.

Can anyone suggest other blogspots that I might subscribe to for the current folk genre.

Thanking you for all your efforts - much appreciated.
