Thread Name: Advice re. House Concerts
Subject: RE: Advice re. House Concerts
Well said, Kendall!! I, too, make my living with music and even though I have no problem with singing for a worthy cause, I think that house concerts are a way for musicians to "..become less like coin operated music boxes and more like ordinary people" as Conrad puts it. I think that re-reading Rick Fielding's post from April 23 states all the positives of house concerts vs. the other alternatives,ie: smoky bars, noisy rooms and audiences who don't really care about the music.
