Street Musicians!

A recent trip to Manchester, made me appreciate how much atmosphere and style, good street musicians, or baskers, can add to the environment. They make for great photo-ops as well! I try to make a point of making sure I tip the musicians for their services if I take their photos.....
I'd love to see what the rest of the worlds street musicians are up to! Thanks for sharing what you can....

Hats worn by street musicians could be a theme in itself!

Thanks! But the music from the musicians in the first one was the best...they filled the streets for blocks with calming, beautiful sounds....!

Nice! Thanks for the Kansas City perspective....I like the back perspective of the first one....there's a lot of feeling in the body language....

He sounded great, like a weathered bluesman.

I shot this last summer on the streets of Ann Arbor, home of the University of Michigan, where on most summer days students will be playing on the street, no doubt to help through the school year.

Here's a favorite of mine, of an excellent jazz vibes player, that plays on the streets of Detroit.

I think I posted it once before, but it fits better here.




He lets the children play along with him.

Fantastic!

Hey, this is a nice thread! A night scene from this summer in Périgueux, France (and I'll add a shot of the painter who was with them).
