Thread Name: Professional Folksinger, and Proud of It
Subject: RE: Professional Folksinger, and Proud of It
Very, very hard making a living as a folksinger here in Maritime Canada ... let alone making a living period ... yes there are a few who have and some have become somewhat successful ... but there are many who do supplement their 'folksinging' by teaching music, writing or recording commercial jingles for radio, working in music stores. New Brunswick's finest folksinger (Brent Mason) delivers mail for Canada Post to pay the mortgage and feed his family.
