Isn't this what insurance is for?

As a member of a ceilidh band I've found some venues insist on bands having public liability insurance, so we have it. It costs a fraction of the earnings from one gig.

Insurance on your instruments is a good idea, too. It wouldn't help here but in this case PLI would cover damage to a borrowed instrument. (It also covers claims between performers in the band: accidents can happen many ways)
