Bristol named Britain’s ‘most musical city’ in new survey – but Cardiff was Second”

The Performing Rights Society recently conducted a poll that placed Cardiff as the 2nd most musical city in the UK. The data is based on the number of musicians that are produced when compared to the total population. The organisation used its massive data base to determine the birthplace of its membership. London was 26th despite having the most musicians, but this is interesting data regarding the post I gave a couple of weeks ago regarding the opportunities of Welsh Musicians. Regardless if opportunities are there are not, Cardiff at least seems to be doing something right. Here are a few links below discussing the subject.
