GUEST,TB Heavy Handed PRS (105* d) RE: Heavy Handed PRS 23 Nov 09


Don, I believe the method involves handing in a series of 'set lists' showing all the songs and tunes 'performed' in the session, together with a statement that these must be de facto new 'original arrangements' because the instrumentation and variations were unique to the night.

The new tariff will remove landlords from the equation. I'm not disputing your suggestion, and I know it's happened elsewhere, but sometimes landlords have not been given the necessary information by the musician. There have also been times when landlords have used PRS 'hounding' (yes, I know they do hound - and have complained about it to the PRS board, unlike most people) as an excuse to get rid of an uneconomic activity. So it's not always clear cut.

When claiming that a session is 'wholly traditional' it's necessary to know the copyright status of everything played. (No Dusty Windowsills, Spoota Skerry, Ride On or Fiddlers Green for example).
