a hundred years ago
A hundred years ago, most of the music people heard was live. They made it themselves, or their neighbors did, in parlor or front porch or church or kitchen. They went out to see someone play music, they listened and sang and played in pub or club or school room, as they worked and at home. A recent study shows that now, less than one per cent of the music most people hear is heard live. That may be unlikely to apply to many who travel here along the music road. Still, it’s an idea to think about.
