Hi all,
I strongly agree with Marnie.  As a performer, I have set fees but
depending on a number of variables, including that I often reduce my rate
for libraries that have limited budgets and what the performance parameters
are, fees may be negotiable and my feeling is that fee should not be
publicized in a broad forum such as this.
Thanks and Cheers!
