Thread Name: Fees (concert admission prices)
Subject: RE: Fees (concert admission prices)
"I want to support the venue and ensure it has a full house, I feel it's my duty as a member of the local folk community, it's a new performer and I want to see if he/she is good or not, it's a not-so-good performer and I don't want his/her performance to be a flop, etc."

Joe, if only more people this side of the pond supported these ideals..

I run some concerts (KFFC) on this side of the pond..... we had 70+ in last month for a well known act..... and only 13 this month for an excellent but little known show. It's really frustrating but we can only seem to get people out for the established acts, people just won't take the chance.

Entry was £5 for either event, so I don't think the fee is an issue.
