Question: What do you do when you wake up too ill to play the day of a gig?

Bottom line: I find a replacement for the gig. But in order to do that, it’s critical to lay the groundwork long before you need a sub. I think when you become a professional freelance harpist, it is important to build relationships with other harpists. As you nurture these relationships and build trust with other harpists, you will know whom to call in an emergency situation. I have several “go to” harp friends. We respect each other and trust recommending each other for gigs when we are not able to play a harp job for whatever reason.
