The true heroes of the music industry

One question often posed to musicians is: what would you like to see in your local area that would help you as a musician? The answer is often this: more music venues. I would have a different reply though: more people who come out and listen to music! We find that there are many places to play here in Dalarna, where we live, but the problem is often that it's hard for the venues to attract an audience, and it's especially hard to attract a paying audience, so that us musicians can get paid for our work. Therefore, the real heroes of the music industry are the people who tirelessly go on arranging cultural events, despite all the difficulties, and the people who come out to listen, and sometimes even pay to listen! YOU are the people who make this cultural world go around, you are the heroes, and I hope you understand how important you are to culture! Thank you! <3
