RB 198: The Community Supported Musician (Rethinking Music VIII)


Listen: or download | …also in Ogg

Is there room in the music industry for middle-class musicians?

Friend of the show Nancy Baym brought together three career performer/songwriters who all stumbled on the same analogy for how musicians can “make it” in the digital age: that of Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs). Kristin Hersh, Zoe Keating, and Erin McKeown discuss what models have worked for them, and the unorthodox ways they’ve learned to make a living as artists.
