Ruth Archer The Concept of FREED Folkmusic (1216* d) RE: The Concept of FREED Folkmusic 29 Sep 10

Oh look - more dirty commerce from Conrad's website:

"Note: We are not a rental car company. We are a family that has to take the time to attend your event and keep the bills paid. If we do not charge reasonable fees to cover expenses then we go further into debt. We have been there, done that, no fun!...Payment is due when we arrive at the event. You can pay us in advance or when we get there. Why?- because we have had people who did not pay us as promised! Yes it happens!"

So how come it's okay for Conrad to charge a fee for driving around an event in one of his cars, but musicians who have spent years perfecting their craft ought to be giving their services for free? After all, isn't a musician charging a fee to keep the bills paid and to prevent themselves going into debt?

Do I smell a hypocrite...?
