What may be played is: originals, public domain (i.e. classical music or any song published more than 95 years ago), or folk music (anonymous, older music indigenous to a particular culture). Please take this condition seriously. We cannot risk the fines that would be incurred if someone disregards this rule, and will not ask back any musician who does. This applies to any instrumentation.
