    I play in care homes – volunteer so don’t think that is a problem but I also play in a restaurant and am wondering if I am infringing on copyright laws by playing popular music as well as copyright harp arrangements.

    Hi Sharon,

    Sylvia Woods carries a book that you might be interested in called, “The Teacher’s Guide to Music, Media, and Copyright Law”.

    You should be fine with the playing. It is the responsibility of the venue to have the proper licencing for the music, not the performer. If the Restaurant has it’s licenses in order then neither you nor they are
