Subject: RE: Harder for the ladies to get gigs???
I've had a few people tell me they ration the number of solo middle-aged men they book at their club or festival because there are so many of us. They'd much rather book a woman or both Toms (for the same fee, ideally :-) because then the event will stand out in the calendar. I've heard tell there are not enough female acts around (maybe I'd get more work if I dragged up? Now where did I put those limpets?)
