You've done us not-so-old folky types proud Smile

Best album and best British female artist at the Brits is pretty good going.

Not that i buy into any of that award ceremony stuff, but it's nice to see the great british public is finally cottoning on to folk music again Grin

albeit light posh folk type but hey it is having a moment, might lead to good things

Dropdeadfred · 16/02/2011 09:30

Apparently, so I'm told by staunch 'folky' - neither of those to artists are folk

IntergalacticHussy · 16/02/2011 09:30

true. that's what i hope too, really, that we'll get a proper folk revival out of it, with some really political stuff, hopefully.

Dropdeadfred i think folk has always been at war with itself over what qualifies and what doesn't. I'm more of a 60's folk revival fan meself (much too young to be into that stuff really, i blame my parents)

They are my 2 favourite artists. I saw them both at Blissfields in 2009 and they were both fab. Have seen Laura on tour since and she is truely amazing. Guess she'll be better known now as most people I know still haven't heard of her.

Dropdeadfred · 16/02/2011 09:42

I love Mumford & sons Grin

IntergalacticHussy · 16/02/2011 09:43

i'd like to see her live; we nearly did last summer at a festival but had to go home early cos of putrid loos and kids who wouldn't sleep...

Mumford and sons were in the house next door to us playing on the album the guys there were recording!They came round (the neighbour)to say they would be having a studio set up for 3 days and they wouldn't be too loud but Mumford and sons were playing and they were so excited.They must have thought we were v strange as we didn't really comment and just said ok not too noisy boys Grin.Was pretty surprised to see tehm winning brits!

DuplicitousBitch · 16/02/2011 09:44
