Thread Name: FSGW Getaway -- Tape Recordings
Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway -- Tape Recordings
The Getaway workshops are an open venue, like the Augusta Workshops, where it is pretty much taken for granted that people will record. If workshops leaders would prefer not to be recorded, or not to have their workshop recorded, I hope they will say so.

Once you've made a recording there's a question of what you can and/or should do with the recording. If I think I might want to learn and sing someone's song that I just recorded, I ask permission then and there. Of course, don't release your recordings to other people or use them for commercial purposes without permission.

The evening concerts are another question. Ask permission ahead of time, of each performer you'd like to record. Tinker has recorded part of the evening concerts in the past, with permission, and with permission, she has sold the recordings to people as a souvenir of the Getaway.

Don't record in mini concerts without asking. If a performer has CD's to sell, probably it's a good idea to ask before you record their stuff. (I once saw a performer pick up someone's recorder and click the OFF button, while he kept on singing.) If you prefer not to be recorded, it's a good idea to say so up front.

Does that cover it?
