jimmyt How can a folkie make a living? (120* d) RE: How can a folkie make a living? 26 Oct 09

I decided in 1969 from observing other musicians struggling to make a go if it that I would keep my music as a passion, and find another career to afford me the luxury of getting to play with my passion, music. I was a jazz man back then. NOw a PLay a bit of Jazz and blues, folk and do-wop. Having an absolute ball performing, giving my share to the other musicians who need the bucks. It works for me, and it sure beats the hassle and disappointment of trying to do it as a career. Music is music, be it folk or otherwise. We are all underpaid, but what ya gonna do?
