johncharles Why Do Musicians Work For Nothing? (293* d) RE: Why Do Musicians Work For Nothing? 08 May 14


If we are talking about folk festivals the performers are often a mix of big name acts who certainly get paid, and talented amateurs who may or may not get paid. I guess we amateurs do it because we enjoy performing the music, not trying to earn a living from it.
If all performers were demanding payment I think market forces would lead to higher costs for the audience and a reduction in the number of performers, both to be regretted in my mind.
