Subject: RE: PRS at it again!!
There has to come a point when sensibility comes into it.
Most folk club organisers run them for love, not profit. All these additonal costs will force clubs to close.
I know that performers should get there dues.
However, when we are trying to make ends meet and spend a lot of our free time to provide a form of entertainment for the good of the locals and keep the tradition of folk alive, additional costs only help to make us want to stop.
Less venues, less publicity for the performers.
You have a a choice performers. Collect the small amount from PRS if anything, or look at things on a more open basis.
Stop PRS hitting the folk clubs. We are the ones who give you the chance to entertain the public, without us, you can't.
The world is going bonkers.
