Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
If the UK exits the EU, how easy or how difficult will it be for UK musicians to perform in Europe? It's expensive and complicated for European musicians to get a visa to perform in the U.S., although U.S. musicians don't seem to have that much difficulty performing in the UK and Europe.

It seems like it's more difficult for U.S. musicians to perform in Canada, than it is for them to perform in Europe. That may be just a matter of perception. U.S. musicians may want to go to Canada to do a gig or two because it's so easy to travel there, but they resent having to get a work permit. It may be just as hard to get a work permit to perform in Europe, but Americans don't go to Europe for just one or two gigs.
