Zhenya Article about Joshua Bell trying busking (76* d) RE: Article about Joshua Bell trying busking 09 Apr 07

Bee-dubya-ell- That's not always true! My fiddle teacher used to play at an Irish session that started very late and ran all night, and he would first be coming home at 8 A.M.!

This article has ticked me off since I saw the post earlier today. Even if someone rushes by at any time during the week and ignores a busker, how do you know their reason? Maybe they're rushing to get to their child's violin recital! Maybe they usually do stop to hear buskers and really enjoy that, but this one time they can't. Just because a specific person doesn't stop at a particular time to hear a particular musician, doesn't tell you anything about their knowledge of and respect for music or musicians.

By the way, lengthy discussions of this article have appeared today on just about every music site I regularly look at - the Irish ones, fiddle ones, etc. It certainly caught people's attention.
