What is a Musician?

PRESENTED ON NOV 09, 2017
IN MADISON, WI @ VOL 24

Elizabeth Simcock wants to explore how we understand the word "musician." Musicians are powerful: picture people fawning over a lead singer on guitar. But musicians are also powerless: imagine the parent saying, "You're doing WHAT for a living?" Being a musician has a certain mystique that is captivating, even though the reality can be challenging in every way possible. But saying, "I am a musician." What does that really mean? Come along on a 20x20-second ride that may change the way you think of yourself.
