DonMeixner Too old for folk when this is over (62* d) RE: Too old for folk when this is over 30 Jul 20


As I approach 70 I have been having similar wonderment's. My wife and I think nothing about driving from central New York to Louisville Ky to visit a seldom seen grand daughter. Granted I am not stopping every 200 hundred miles, off loading a PA and a slew of instruments every other night, only to reload and hit the road again. But if I were I would probably be playing in libraries, small museums, and village parks, not saloons and stadiums or festivals. I would be performing probably for folks my age more than anyone else, but I would be performing.

So far I have lost seven months of music and craft fair business. The rest of the year looks equally bleak.   I suppose both businesses are exhausting to one degree or another. The hard work is now this, how do I turn the music and silversmithing into a money making concern in the rapidly changing market. I have no doubt I will be playing with the band in Pubs again but it will never be the same as it was.

But it is always never the same.

Don
