When visiting places in Siouxland like Old Market in Omaha, NE, many times in better weather one will find a collection of street musicians playing on the street corner. Violins, cellos, guitars, accordions and some other instruments are the tools of these folks trade. And generally they are very good.

This is one time I regret not having a recorder with me and capturing a little sound to share. These two men were playing lively “cajun” music, at least to my ears. Not much of which I have heard living in Siouxland these last few years.

All are appreciative of what you can offer for their talent. During the summer months in normal times many people are out in the Market and the sounds can get lively adding yet another flavor of life to savor while out and about and enjoying a day.

    I spent five minutes once filming a great blues player on the streets of Manchester to share through my blog. It was only when I got home and started to make the post I discovered that it hadn’t recorded 🙈
