That website is good as I missed the first part of the show and didn't know that some peolpe I really like (Bellowhead, Whapweasel and Kathryn Tickell) had won awards.

Make sure I see the Oyster Band at least once a year, for the past 14 years, magnificent live experience shared by young and old, as I'm sure you'll agree.

lol BGD - June Tabor had on MC Hammer's pants! I must get the Karine Polwart album, thought she was fab (I love the Malnky album 3 Ravens which is where I had heard of her from).

Didn't realise Karine Polwart was in Malinky. Saw them recently, they were good. The solo album sounds like a must have too.

Mrs BGD went to bed going "What is she wearing" after seeing Maddy Prior with Steeleye Span!

OMG Steeleye span. My mum and dad used to have their stuff and i grew up on it.

Mr phatcat kept muttering 'put 'em away love' when Maddy was swirling her skirts around.
