GUEST,Some bloke Making folk club recordings available (96* d) RE: Making folk club recordings available 01 May 19


We ask our booked artists if we can record the concert with a view to making CDs for sale of no more than two songs per artist (otherwise their own CDs donít get sold) and preferably (if they sang them) traditional or written by the artist. These become raffle prizes and sold to subsidise the running of the club.

Many are ok with it. We record in very high quality through the main mixer and ambience mics and I spend hours mixing it down in post production. Some artists have included our recordings as live tracks on their own albums. Granted, one or two feel they are contracted not to and only one has said no based on personal choice.

If we get into discussing copyright and unauthorised recordings, bear in mind how many phones are busy recording. Iím delighted when a video of me appears on Facebook although I didnít know I was being recorded but Iím sure Mick Jagger thinks differently. Most folk circuit performers like the publicity, and few are tied to litigious record labels these days.
