1 crowbone 1 year ago My daily commute into work(when not driving) consists of a walk that's little over a mile. I take the underground concourse in all but the fairest weather, and aside from the occasional urine-y smelling corner, it's a pretty nice walk. One thing I've noticed lately though, much to my surprise, is the wealth of talent the buskers have here in Philadelphia. I've seen everything(in the last few months) from bluegrass trios, to soul quartets. Solo violinists, to small chamber orchestras. There's is a couple of folks who are in the same spot almost every morning that have these voices - just amazing, while their seeing eye dogs sit there, and seem to enjoy every note as I walk by. Of course, I see the Bob Dylan wanna-bees, with there guitars out of tune and not being strummed in rhythm, but it's all forgivable because they aren't on your radar for any more than 30 seconds, as you make your way into work. The balance, it seems to me, is that there is an amazing amount of talent down in the subway, and judging from the money thrown into the cases & cds sold, they look like they are doing fairly well. So a few questions: Where ya from, & what are some of your favorite busking acts? Have any of you took to the subway to try and earn some coin? If so, what was your experience?
