GUEST,Phil Cooper Booking Folk Gigs. Some suggestions. (56* d) RE: Booking Folk Gigs. Some suggestions. 24 May 01


Dear Fortunato,

By imploding market, I meant my friend was referring to more and more performers trying to play fewer and fewer places. At the folk alliance international conference you see a lot of performers mobbing a few presenters. When I was in college as an english major I remember a professor telling us that more people wrote poetry than actually read it. I sometimes think that's true for folk, in darker moments. But usually I don't. I would wish the booking process were not so competitive, but I'm also aware that this is a voluntary profession. My apologies for signing on as a guest, I subscribed in April and got bounced out for some reason or other in mid-May. When trying to re-subscribe I was told my name was already in use. Time being a finite commodity, I haven't pushed much further than that.
