Re: Musicians and far away dance events...

safer for instruments.
However far distances wouldn't totally prevent the presence of
exciting instruments. I know of one musician that borrows a violin
from us when he flies to Cynnabar. There's a wide variety of plastic
instruments that aren't bad quality wise and can take abuse well.
Small instruments often fit in a carry-on bag... you get the idea.
In other words, far distances won't prevent live music. It'll only
limit the number of fragile instruments taken.
