End the need for benefit concerts   2009-11-16 11:53 AM

Sunday's Chicago Tribune ran a thoughtful and provocative op-ed on musicians and health insurance penned by Nan Warshaw of Chicago's Bloodshot Records and Alex Maiolo, project coordinator for the Future of Music Coalition's Health Insurance Navigation Tool (HINT).

The Future of Music Coalition blog notes:

the article is interesting because instead of a “pity the poor musicians” angle, it portrays artists as what they actually are: entrepreneurs who are trying to compete in an open marketplace, like Americans are encouraged to do. Yet because to the current health insurance landscape, it is exceedingly difficult for most musicians to pursue their craft.
