Subject: RE: Festival Question/Workshops
One person mentioned it up the thread. It's been contemplated lots, but only done once - as far as I know - and bad billing and stewarding ruined it.

PA workshop.

A chance for a quick play on a big stage with a big PA with big monitors, and some words from the sound crew on how and why a muso should do whatever.

A soundcheck recently turned into this kind of thing - Artiste looked at the programme and chanced their arm that the sound crew wouldn't mind them turning up early. The chance for them to ask questions and try different microphone techniques really seemed to help.

Could this help anybody else?
