During Lockdown I missed live music, as all the venues were closed.In Belfast we are lucky to have a lot of live music and great bands and very talented musicians. I like anything from Blues to Rock to Traditional music. I feel for many of the musicians I know, who cannot play to audiences and the finanical difficulties they must be in, along with others in the Art Sector. As I am in an older age group, I picture being asked for ID, at venue that is for below 65 only in an Orwellian future.
