hanrahan Street Musicians, Buskers? (94* d) RE: Street Musicians, Buskers? 01 Feb 98


This brings back memories of summer days on the Boston Common 1968-72....guitars, sometimes 10 or more...crowds of singers...bali-high(sp) wine ...a variety of herbal essances...war protests...George McGovern...concerts on Cambridge Common...what a time that was. Another great area for street performers is in New York City around 4th street i think, positively 4th street...and Washington Square where i once saw John Lennon playing some old wooden bongos with this huge man (6'5" at least) on a flute and a guitar player...It has been several years since i last passed through NYC, i wonder if the scene is still there. Boston & Cambridge are definitly still hosts to numerous buskers, not only music but i have recently seen magicians, acrobats, and even a fire eater...bless them all for the flavor they add to the city.
