Subject: Tom Bliss - So long and thanks
Just read the article by Tom Bliss, in the latest Living Tradition, entitled 'So long and thanks for the gigs'.

On the face of it, I find it very sad that we haven't been able to build the infrastructure of suitable venues to support a viable body of professionals.
It's no good having a restricted number of big name headliners without a large pool of other good perfomers to provide the support.

I think that most of us mnkow that's it difficult to make a living from the folk circuit, but has it reached critical level?
