Thread Name: Getting nursing home gigs
Subject: RE: Getting nursing home gigs
Frank and I play for free at the nursing homes of friends and family, and we receive payment at others that ask us to play. Most of the songs we do are old folk and bluegrass classics which many residents have never heard before, but which are surprisingly well-received. In fact, the residents (and staff) like this variation from their usual entertainment. Music is truly universal.
