Subject: RE: Folk Performers Association
It is very common that performers advertising themselves assume that
everybody knows what they do. Someone putting on say a medieval banquet, for example ,looking for performers would not have clue as who does what.So they go to a Folk Agency , even there unless you specify what you can do you will miss out on this work.Well known artists are known to everybody in the Folk World but very few will know them outside it.We all know that for Weddings and other special events , we can put on a fantastic evening that will be different from the DJ in the corner putting on his favourites and with no thought for the audience in front of him.
If you are advertising list the lot, just in the way Ray has just done we all now know what he is looking for and what he is trying to do.
