Fair Play Pittsburgh is simply an idea and a conversation at this point. The idea is essentially based on the Fair Trade Music concept which aims to create a win-win-win between audiences, musicians and venues so that the whole music ecosystem is valued and sustainable. It is a musician-led effort.
With the excellent work of Christiane Leach and the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, and the help of a variety of venues, we are able to hold public conversations about the state of live music culture in Pittsburgh with special attention to what the professional and semi-professional club musicians desire to make it stronger and better.
Here are the summary notes from the first two meetings. Enjoy!
