Subject: RE: Fees (concert admission prices)
Well done George , Dick Greenhaus , Arthur and Joe for bringing some sense and sane comments to this grossly, distasteful, personalised matter.
The whole matter in the opening Thread relates to an UNCHECKED statement.
Perhaps we could start a new thread whereby all Mudcatters divulge their Monthly salary.Yeh - let's all show our arses !!!!
If the entrance fee is worth it to YOU, that's all that matters. No one is forcing anyone to book ANYONE . I'm sure that lots of other individuals and groups have Terms and Conditions proposed to Organisers ,which in turn the Organiser may accept or reject.
Let's not vilify this great performer in this manner,I don't know what is going on here, but this guy VG has been performing around the English speaking world for 40 years now and wowwing audiences graet and small .
Where does it all end - how much George wants ?,how much Tom McConville wants? how much Martin Carthy wants ? etc.etc .
It's their business how they make arrangements with Organisers - and the only thing that matters to you is whether the entrance fee is worth paying.
As for those organisers who take pride in not booking Vin , that's entirely THEIR business , but IMHO I feel sure they have deprived their audience of an evening with a very decent and remarkably talented performer, songwriter, musician and goodly humoured person.
