I agree with your theme that if something is desired it must be encouraged,
and moreover I agree that often musicians *are* in fact treated badly at
events, as are storytellers.
How would you prefer to be treated? I'm not going to defend such behavior
as treated musicians as "walking tape recorders", OTOH, it is my impression
that often musicians were kept in the background, in order to provide what
has been referred to by some as "stairwell music", or background atmosphere.
Is there a better way to handle this?
