What Working Musicians Need to Know – June 19th Free Workshop for Musicians

May 31, 2010

Many musicians, including people doing a lot of performing and recording, are not aware of their possible sources of income. We estimate that as much as $300,000 in royalties and residual payments for recording to which Newfoundland and Labrador musicians are entitled goes unclaimed each year. These sources include performing rights, mechanical rights, neighbouring rights and residual payments for recording available through the AFM. This is in addition to the grants offered by the Arts Council, MusicNL, the Canada Council and FACTOR!

To help musicians better understand their rights and claim this income, the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council and the Newfoundland and Labrador Musicians’ Association will jointly sponsor a free workshop for musicians at the Gower Street United Church Hall on the afternoon of Saturday, June 19th.

The session from 1-3 PM will feature a panel presentation by Katrina Rice of the Arts Council, Jen Winsor of MusicNL and Dan Rubin of the NL Musicians’ Association. After a short presentation by each speaker, there will be plenty of time to answer questions and help musicians understand how to improve their income.

This workshop is free but participants should pre-register by sending an email to nlmusicians@hotmail.com.
