Episode Info

Episode Info:

James Fagan is a multi-instrumentalist, bouzouki, guitar and mandolin player, singer and doctor.

James and partner in music and life Nancy Kerr have toured internationally as Kerr Fagan, have thousands of fans across the world, and twice been named Best Duo in the BBC Folk Awards.

James has performed with other hugely-acclaimed artists including Eliza Carthy, Spiers & Boden, Bellowhead, Cara Dillon and Martin Simpson.

And he has some of the most important business advice I've ever heard for musicians which you can hear – along with fascinating tales – in this latest episode of the Business Live radio show.

The show also features Chris Mason, owner of CMP Gyms. The fitness industry is a cut-throat, dog-eat-dog world, says Chris, who's seen first-hand the difficulties which many personal trainers face in making a living.

But now Chris, who with his 6-strong team trains 200 people at his 2000 sq foot gym, also mentors other fitness professionals and helps them avoid common business pitfalls in their industry. He too has tips you can learn from.

Fascinating insights from both of today's guests, applicable directly to music and fitness, but way beyond these industries too.
