My name is Dicky O’Hara, I am a working musician based in Plymouth. As with all musicians, music isn’t just a hobby, it is a part of my entire life. We wake up in the morning and practice for hours on end, travelling with all of the equipment for miles around to entertain audiences. I love my job, but paid work can often be hard to come by. I would like to offer my thoughts on this as a musician and try to urge you to support your local talented musicians.
