GUEST,Stim How do you make money in folk music? (132* d) RE: How do you make money in folk music? 17 Jan 16


I have to say that I think Dave's site is wonderful, inspirational even--I have to laugh at our UK friend, who basically says that the way Dave's been supporting a family for the last 24 years isn't viable;-)

He says a lot about the business aspect--and that's the part that trips a lot of people up. A lot of performers, especially folkies, look down on the business part of this, and that is what keeps you going. Notwithstanding what everyone is saying about excellence and uniqueness--there are more "same-old,same-old" performers out there who are good with booking and bookkeeping than "unique talents" who aren't.
