johnfitz.com How do you make money in folk music? (132* d) RE: How do you make money in folk music? 13 Jan 04


Yeah, there's pretty good music in Concord. Come check it out. I was born here and have sat on the same barstool, in the corner of the Village Forge at te Colonial Inn for over twenty years playing to a pretty steady crowd. When I first started I thought it would be a good place to step off from--towards a more artistically rewarding career in music. Now it's just a great way to make a little extra cash and sing whatever the heck I want to sing. My kids have grown up singing and listening to what I think is great music. I do know how lucky I am, and how good I have it. I appreciate everyones input. I'm trying to make a renewed foray into the broader (outside of town) world of folk music. The discipline of marketing and promotion won't (doesn't) come naturally to me. But, if you ever hear my name you'll at least know I've managed to do something. Thanks for the input, the asides and the reality checks. Fitz
