Quotes

Beverley Whitrick of the Music Venue Trust said: "The Agent of Change Principle is not complicated or controversial, it's simple common sense: the person or business responsible for the change is responsible for managing the impact of the change."
"The venue itself was quite intimate - so it is fantastic that the artists and their incredible performances will now be exposed to a national audience."
...But he criticises the judges for failing to include a classical music artist for the 12th year in a row. "You do have to wonder whether the Mercury has just decided that classical music, like heavy metal, is a genre it doesn't engage with" , he writes
"What most impressed the judges was the inventive passion with which musicians explore music and emotional possibilities, refusing to be pinned down by rules or genre."
